Touching Moment – Jose Fernandez Reunites With His Grandmother

Prior to winning the National League Rookie of the Year Award Jose Fernandez was surprised while giving an interview by the arrival through the doors of his Grandmother.  The  now 21 year Fernandez had not seen her since leaving Cuba when he was 15 years old.

For all the bad we hear about in sports and how it’s just a business it is nice to see the human side reveal itself in such a beautiful and emotional moment:

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
