Fernandez’s HS Gets Stolen Jersey Back

September 30, 2016

TAMPA, Fla. — A high school jersey once worn by Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and stolen after his death has been returned to the Florida school.

Hillsborough County Public Schools said in a news release Friday that the jersey was returned Sept. 29.

Officials said a family saw a large envelope leaning up against the ticket booth at Alonso High School with the words “Jose’s jersey” written on it. The family took the envelope into to the school Sept. 30. The jersey was inside.

It was taken Sept. 28 following a vigil for the 24-year-old, who died over the weekend in a boating accident in Miami Beach.

Fernandez attended Alonso High in Tampa in 2011.
