It can be difficult to explain how much of an impact someone had once they are gone. Outside of the baseball world, many might not know who Jose Fernandez was. Well, the 24-year old star pitcher who was born in Cuba and fought for years to make it to the United States and eventually to the Major Leagues, really did have a huge impact on the game of baseball in his short time in the league. You wouldn’t be able to tell or comprehend his struggle based on his demeanor or his personality. You can read all about his journey and the difficult road he took to make it to the United States, but the fact is that once his journey was a success, he never took a day for granted and enjoyed every moment he spent on a baseball field.

Jose brought an infectious smile and personality to the game that sometimes could be overlooked. Baseball has a rich history of written rules and non-written rules, but Jose was changing the rules every time he entered the ballpark. He was just a kid living his dream and wanted to enjoy every moment. Jose Fernandez may not be with us anymore, but his spirit and what he brought to the game will stay with Major League Baseball for a long time to come. For now, here are 16 gifs to remember #16 Jose Fernandez by.

And sometimes his stretching just happened to be right on camera

He’d even have the competition smiling

The competition wasn’t always smiling when he was on the mound

He would get into some pre-game hi-jinx with the mascots

And had his coaches laughing

And took the time to take some batting practice 

via MLB.com


Even though when he faced pitchers, he was sometimes left speechless

via MLB.com


Other times he was crushing home runs



But, he could still do this to you



His impressions of his teammates were always on point

via MLB.com


And his dancing was even better

via MLB.com


His skills always had his opponents amazed



But most of all, he always had fun and brought a smile to the game

via MLB.com


We’re all going to miss that.

RIP Jose Fernandez 1992-2016
