MIAMI (AP) As a public memorial service was set Wednesday for Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is seeking a safety probe into the rock jetty where a boat crash claimed the lives of the baseball star and two friends.
The team said in a news release that fans can gather Wednesday along the west side of Marlins Park for the departure of a funeral motorcade at 2:16 p.m. The 24-year-old Fernandez wore No. 16 on his jersey.
A public viewing will be held at St. Brendan's Catholic Church from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. A private funeral Mass will be held Thursday with family and Marlins players and personnel.
