Jose Fernandez’s stolen high school jersey has been returned.

According to the AP, a jersey once worn by Fernandez at Tampa’s Alonso High School was stolen after a candlelight vigil at the school on Wednesday night.

On Friday, the Hillsborough County Public Schools released the news that the jersey was left in an envelope with the words “Jose’s jersey” written on it outside the ticket booth at Alonso’s football stadium.

Fernandez led the Alonso Ravens to a state title as a senior in 2011 before being a first round pick of the Marlins.

The 24-year-old ace died in a boating accident of Miami Beach early Sunday morning.
