Baseball: Jose Fernandez makes Miami trip

Three days after Alonso senior Jose Fernandez was selected by the Florida Marlins with the 14th pick in the first round, the pitcher met his new team Thursday.
Hours before the Marlins took on the Braves, Fernandez met with the Miami media as well as Marlins players.
“I’m sure he’ll meet the front office there, the owner and whoever,” Alonso coach Landy Faedo said. “I’m sure they’ll have media stuff lined up.”
That trip means he likely will miss his high school graduation, which is scheduled to take place Friday at 8 p.m. at Expo Hall at the State Fairgrounds.
The trip down south also meant he missed the Alonso baseball banquet on Thursday. Fernandez was named the team MVP and picked up the Andy Priede Award, given to the team’s best pitcher. The award is named after former Ravens pitching coach Andy Priede who passed away.
Before watching his Marlins fall to the Braves, 3-2, he spoke to the media. Here’s the story courtesy of the Marlins.
