The City of Miami steps up

On the same day of José Fernández’s funeral procession at Marlins Park, the City of Miami has payed its respects to the former Miami Marlins pitcher with a message on signs along 836 reading: "Jose Fernandez #16 Forever."

The procession begins at 2:16 p.m., leaving Marlins Park to Ermita de la Caridad at 3609 South Miami Avenue for a blessing, per Channel 10.

Fernández passed away early Sunday morning in a boat crash with friends Eddy Rivero and Emilio Macias off the coast of Miami Beach.
