This will give you chills.
One day after the death of 24-year-old All-Star pitcher Jose Fernandez, the Miami Marlins returned to the field against the New York Mets on Monday night.
After a pregame tribute to their late teammate, Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon opened the game by batting right-handed for one pitch, to honor Fernandez, before switching back to the left side and hitting his first homer of the year.
Never miss a local story.
Gordon jogged around the bases in tears. It was, quite simply, a moment you’ll see for years.
