Marlins Pitcher Jose Fernandez Eaten By His Jacket [GIF]

Jose Fernandez Jacket

Miami Marlins’ pitching prospect Jose Fernandez is young and talented. He’s making his Marlins’ Park debut tonight. The emphasis is on young, because Fernandez puts on his warm-up jacket while running the bases with all the dexterity of a second-grader. During Saturday night’s game with the Philadelphia Phillies, Fernandez singled — his first career major league hit — to drive in Adeiny Hechavarria and the give the Marlins a 1-0 lead. When the rookie attempted to put on his jacket while standing on first base, things didn’t go so well. Watch the GIF below:

The Marlins and the Phillies are tied, 1-1, in the seventh inning. Let’s hope for safety’s sake that Fernandez is not a hitting prodigy, too.
