Marlins to place plaque outside ballpark for Jose Fernandez
Team to honor pitcher, broadcaster Felo Ramirez
MIAMI – The Miami Marlins are planning to place a plaque outside Marlins Park to honor Jose Fernandez.
According to a team source, the team is currently painting the wall outside Marlins Park that served as a makeshift memorial to the pitcher, who was killed in a boating accident on Sept. 25, 2016.
Two other people were killed in the crash.
The Marlins confirmed a report by MLB.com's Joe Frisaro that Fernandez's mother collected his gear from his locker at Marlins Park.
Fernandez's locker remained in-tact for the entire 2017 season.
The Marlins will also recognize legendary broadcaster Felo Ramirez with a plaque.
Ramirez's broadcasting career spanned seven decades.
He died at age 94.
