josefernandezMiami-Dade officials have agreed to rename a street outside Marlins Park after Jose Fernandez.

The decision was made on Tuesday, so everyone involved was well-aware that Jose was found to be on cocaine and drunk the time his boat crashed.

Despite the controversy, Jose Fernandez Avenue will happen because community leaders prefer to focus on his life as a baseball player and the positive impact he had on the community.

Not everyone agrees with the naming, asking what kind of example this will be for impressionable children and fans.
