“Some­how we’ve got to over­come that.”

His death sent shock waves through­out Ma­jor League Base­ball. Fer­nan­dez and two other men were killed when his 32-foot SeaVee slammed into a rock jetty that ex­tends off the south­ern tip of South Beach. A Coast Guard crew go­ing out on pa­trol dis­cov­ered the wreck at 3:30 a.m. Sun­day, author­i­ties said.

The boat landed up­side­down, with its en­gines par­tially sub­merged, its bow pointed sky­ward and de­bris scat­tered over the large jagged rocks.

The ex­act time of the ac­ci­dent and who was be­hind the wheel have yet to be de­ter­mined, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Com­mis­sion

said. There’s no im­me­di­ate in­di­ca­tion that al­co­hol or drugs fac­tored into the crash, added a com­mis­sion spokesman, Lorenzo Veloz.

Also killed were Emilio Ma­cias, 27, and Ed­uardo Rivero, 25, ac­cord­ing to Dar­ren Caprara, op­er­a­tions direc­tor of the Mi­ami-Dade Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner’s Of­fice. The med­i­cal ex­am­iner will es­tab­lish the cause of death for all of the vic­tims.
