More than a Game

Since the death of Jose Fernandez I have been trying to find a way to write an article about how massive of a loss Jose will be the sports universe.  He had all the talent in the world but more importantly he had all the joy in the world.  The stories continue to pour out from players around the league about how much he meant to the game.  I can’t imagine being a Marlins player last night in their first game since his passing, a game where he was scheduled to pitch no less. But the strangest thing happened in the Continue reading More than a Game
