Jose Fernandez was a superstar on and off the field. His passion for the game equaled his passion for life. His high energy, passion, attitude and impact for the game will be missed. His love and respect for the game could not be matched. My prayers and condolences to his family, baseball family, friends and fans. May he Rest In Peace. He will be missed

Regrettably never met Jose Fernandez, but he was my favorite player to watch. Not only because he was great, or because I can relate to his background. But because he seemed so real, so full of life, so comfortable with who he was. This is just so damn heartbreaking.

So sad about tragic death of Jose Fernandez My prayers and condolences go out to his family and to @Marlins. What a shining star he was.

Bernardo Osuna @osunaespn

Sorry to hear about the untimely death of @Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez. Prayers go out to the families involved in the boating accident.

Anything we say in reaction to the news of Jose Fernandez's death seems trivial compared to the magnitude of his loss. He was obviously an amazing pitcher with Hall of Fame potential. But I've been doing this for almost 30 years, and I can only recall a handful of ballplayers who were as naturally vibrant or charismatic. This is just so difficult to understand or accept.

Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident

The Miami Marlins confirmed their All-Star starting pitcher has died at the age of 24. According to CBS in Miami, police received a call of a possible boating accident at 3 am ET. Authorities found a 30-foot boat overturned that had crashed into the rocks off Miami Beach. The team announced today's game against the Braves has been canceled. Story

With the incomparable career of Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully in its final days, let's not forget that for many years prior to the tragic 2007 death of minor league first-base coach Mike Coolbaugh on a line drive that struck him in the neck, Scully publicly and privately implored base coaches to wear protective headgear. When MLB mandated helmets for coaches in 2008, Commissioner Bud Selig acknowledged that Scully's efforts went well beyond advocacy over the airwaves. "Vin Scully called me a lot about this issue," Selig said. "He was worried that somebody would get hurt or killed. And, of course, somebody has been killed." Scully's dedication to the well-being of the people of the game is integral to his legacy.

The Dodgers can win their fourth straight division title, a franchise first, in the last game Vin Scully calls at Dodger Stadium.

Dodger Stadium is now showing the Giants-Padres game for the fans hoping to celebrate an NL West title tonight.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Kershaw 142 IP of arguably best pitching ever. Hendricks 2.06; Lester 2.36 ERA; Scherzer 2.82 ERA, 0.93 WHiP. Relieved I'm not voting.

Dodger Stadium erupted when they saw the score of the Giants-Padres game. It's now 6-6 after the Giants were up 6-0.
