Jose Fernandez was honored by Miami FC during a pre-game memorial ceremony on Wednesday night.
Fernandez, 24, died Sunday in a boat crash off South Beach.
Before the game against Ottawa FC, Miami FC's Cuban midfielder Ariel Martinez carried onto the FIU stadium field a Fernandez 16 Miami FC jersey that was made for the occasion. He carried a Marlins cap for placement in the center circle. There was a moment of silence, and the team's fan group, Dade Brigade, also offered tribute.
Wednesday's game was originally billed as College Night, with college students admitted for $1.
