Baseball players are some of the most superstitious people on the planet. Many of them have elaborate pre-game, at-bat, or even on-the-mound rituals that they feel like they must go through in order for everything to go right.
After Jose's passing, many people honored the pitcher in different ways, and Tandron chose to go the tattoo route. In fact, once he heard of Fernandez's passing, Tandron headed straight for the tattoo shop to pay his respects.
Tandron got Fernandez's number 16 and a little Marlin logo tattooed on his right calf in order to honor the deceased All-Star.
