Under Surveillance: Dee Gordon Emotional Home Run for Jose Fernandez


On Sunday Sept 25, Miami Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez was killed in a boating accident, and on Tuesday the 27th, the entire team wore jerseys sporting his name and number. Leadoff batter Dee Gordon – best friends with Jose – hit a lead off home run, and upon returning to the dug out…well, just watch.

Regardless of how one feels about professional athletes or sports – at the heart of it, they’re real people, and tragedy affects them the same as anybody.

The love and support of friends amid times of suffering – it’s a beautiful thing to witness.
