After 17 years without reaching the playoffs, the Miami Marlins team secured their ticket after a tight victory over the New York Yankees. The Marlins beat the Yankees 4-3 in their stadium, in a game that went to the 10th inning.

The triumph occurred on the same day that it was 4 years after the death of the team’s pitcher and shooting star, José Fernández. From the manager to the players, everyone confessed that their memory inspired them for this Friday’s victory.

Miami has not advanced to the postseason since 2003, when it won the World Series. The team was then known as the Florida Marlins. That year, the Marlins were crowned in six games, beating new York’s Yankee Stadium with Derek Jeter on the mound, currently CEO of the Miami team.

In 2019 the Marlins team had the worst national league stats

With 57 games won compared to 105 lost. In this way, Miami becomes the first team to reach the playoffs in the year after a season with more than 100 losses.

Since the franchise debuted in 1993, under the name Florida Marlins team, this is the third postseason they will attend. In the previous ones, in 1997 and 2003, they finished with the World Series title.

During this course, the Marlins team had to recover to adversity. The team had a coronavirus outbreak that prevented them from playing for more than a week and nearly suspended MLB season.

In the game played yesterday at Yankee Stadium, the rankings mixed with those of the anniversary of José Fernández’s death and those of a difficult and atypical season for the coronavirus.

At the end of the encounter, Miami’s ballers ran to the ground and hugged each other, forgetting the rules of social estviation and unleashing the accumulated emotions.

 For her part, Maritza Gómez, the mother of the defunct Cuban pelotero José Fernández, dedicated moving words to her son at the age of four of his tragic death.

The mother of the Marlins team star wanted to pay special tribute to her memory, so she accompanied her writing with a series of photographs illustrating the brilliant career that was truncated by a boat accident that took place in Miami Beach waters.

At just 24 years old and on the cusp of his professional career, José Fernández’s life was turned off in the early morning of September 25, 2016 in a tragic accident in which two friends of the pelotero who were traveling with him also died: Eddy Rivero and Emilio Macías, 25 and 27, respectively.
