Found April 13, 2013 on The Outside Corner:
During Saturday night's Phillies-Marlins game, Marlins rookie pitcher Jose Fernandez picked up his first major league hit in the fifth inning, bringing in Adeiny Hechevarria to give Miami a 1-0 lead. After Fernandez got the hit, a member of the Marlins ran a jacket out to Fernandez, and the 20-year old had some issues putting the jacket on, perhaps due to a jammed zipper. He eventually needed the help of both first base coach Perry Hill and first base umpire Chris Guccione to get the jacket over his head and safely on his body. Now, I don't know why exactly Fernandez *needed* to wear the jacket, considering the game was indoors in Miami...but to each his own. [follow]
