One for the Ages

The last year that the Chicago cubs won a Major League baseball world series was in 1908. The last time that the cubs went to the World series was in 1945. The Cubs have won two World series pennants, and 17 national league pennants. The Cubs had one of the biggest rebuilding periods; they are also the only team that has had to wait 108 years before returning to the world series. (more…)

A Tribute to Jose Fernandez

Jose Fernandez was a 24-year-old Miami Marlins Pitcher in the MLB. He was recently killed in a boating accident off the coast of Miami Beach. Fernandez was a Cuban baseball player who had to leave his home country at the age of 15 to achieve his dream.

A little after 3:15 on Sunday, September 25, 2016, Coast Guard officials found his 30-foot boat flipped upside down on the north end of a rocky, near the entrance of the Miami Harbor. Along with Fernandez, two other bodies were discovered, one on the rocks and the other two were in the water. In regards to the privacy of the other two men, their names are being held until relatives are notified.

Fernandez was a big part of the Miami Marlins and was beloved by his whole team and most MLB fans. He had outstanding stats which show when you see his 2.86 ERA, 182.1 innings pitched, and 13 home runs throughout the 2016 season.

I feel that Fernandez deserves a real tribute. He was a legendary pitcher in the making. On the pitcher’s mound on the Marlins field, a memorial was put together. I personally liked Fernandez, even though I don’t watch baseball much, but he had to be one of the best all-around baseball players of this era.
