José Fernández : Passion for Baseball, Passion for Life (Paperback) (Clark Spencer)
About this item
In August 2016, José Fernández’s girlfriend, Maria Arias, presented him with a special cake at a family dinner to celebrate that they were going to have a baby. For Fernandez, becoming a father marked a new milestone in a young life that had already been brimming with milestones: fleeing Cuba multiple times before making it to freedom in the United States; drafted by the Miami Marlins in the first round in 2011; making the 2013 and 2016 All-Star teams; winning the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2013, and becoming a U.S. citizen last year. Suddenly, early in the morning of September 25, his life came to a tragic end in a boating crash that left his family, friends, and the baseball world devastated. This book is a Miami Herald tribute to baseball’s unforgettable young pitching sensation and lover of life.
