Sad sad story. Today's Marlins/Braves game has been cancelled.

This is so terrible. Just 24 years old. RIP Jose.

It's hard to fathom. Regards to his family, friends, and fans.

Very heartbreaking.
The impact he had on people in baseball was amazing but it's even more amazing the impact he had on his community. He united others!
I watched his teammates, coaches, and fans put their hand on the vechile yesterday on TV during my flight.
I must admit my eyes started to water.
