Watch Miami Marlins Star Pitcher Jose Fernandez’s Emotional Reunion With Grandmother

Jose Fernandez

We may be inundated by stories of baseball players’ high salaries and allegations of steroid use, but underneath it all, they’re just like us.

In this video, 21-year-old Miami Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez – who hasn’t seen his grandmother since he defected from Cuba when he was 15 – talks about how much she means to him.

Well, imagine his surprise when the team worked some magic to reunite them. It’s an incredibly touching encounter and marked the beginning of a great week for Fernandez — the next day he was named the National League Rookie of the Year.
