Back in September, the sports world was turned upside down when it was announced that Miami Marlins’ 24-year-old star pitcher, Jose Fernandez, had tragically passed away during a boating accident in Miami Beach.

Season over and his teammates still want people to never forget how great of a guy Fernandez was, so they honored him in the best way they knew how by painting a mural of him.
