Shortly before the crash, Fernandez was seen partying on board with a bunch of bikini clad women while they went fishing.
He was madly in love with girlfriend Maria Arias, who was expecting their first child together. Before his untimely death, he shared these words on her Instagram account: “I’m ready for where this journey is gonna take us together.”
The incredible Jose Fernandez was all that was good with baseball. He was the embodiment of joy and charisma, and his life will forever live on in the hearts of fans, friends and family.
