Unhappy Sports Figures Passing

Hi there folks, as I am sure you are aware, today we lost two sports figures.

One of them, was Miami Marlins pitcher, Jose Fernandez. He was killed in a boating accident along with two others, early Sunday local time. He was just 24 years old.

He had defected from Cuba, at age 15 along with his mother and sister. This was after he failed several times and went to prison for it. He was taken away from us, way too soon.

The other sports figure, we lost today was golfing legend, Arnold Palmer. He had a long and distinguished golfing career. He was 87 years old. So, he lived a long and productive life.
