Families of victims in deadly Jose Fernandez crash settle lawsuit against his estate

The families of the two men who were killed in addition to MLB pitcher Jose Fernandez in a 2016 boat crash have settled their lawsuit against his estate, according to the Associated Press.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission found that Fernandez was operating the boat when it crashed off Miami Beach on September 25, 2016. A toxicology report released by the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department a month later showed that Fernandez had cocaine in his system, and had a blood alcohol level of almost twice the legal limit at the time of his death, when he was said to be operating the boat at 65 miles per hour.

Miami Marlins outdrawn by Double-A affiliate in Jacksonville

Yeah Jeets!

The Marlins drew 6,150 fans. The Jacksonville team brought in 6,960 for its home opener Wednesday night.

For the three-game series against New York, the Marlins—who lost Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna as part of a rebuilding plan by the team’s new ownership—drew a total of 19,669 fans.

Depressing. The Mets fans in South Florida didn’t want to come out to see their red-hot team?

Marlins argue they’re from a Caribbean Island

The Marlins are claiming corporate citizenship in the foreign territory in order to have an arbitrator take over a lawsuit filed by Miami and Miami-Dade County in a dispute over the profits from the team’s sale last year, according to the Miami Herald.

But could Marlins Teamco (a subsidiary of Marlins Funding, a subsidiary of Marlins Holdings LLC) win the Caribbean World Series?

Official attendance likely to plummet this season for Marlins | Miami Herald

It remains to be seen whether fewer fans show up this season at Marlins Park if the team struggles, as most expect.

But, whether that proves to be the case, official crowd figures announced by the team are expected to plummet significantly — or at least come closer to reality.

The reason: a Marlins spokesman said Thursday that the Marlins will only count actual tickets sold in their attendance calculations.

Cameron Maybin reunites with Marlins after signing free-agent deal - Sun Sentinel

Cameron Maybin is a Marlin again.

Miami signed the 30-year-old outfielder to a one-year deal, the team announced Wednesday, an early-spring addition that gives the Marlins much-needed major league outfield stability and a veteran presence in what is expected to be a young clubhouse.
