Bryce Harper Honors Jose Fernandez With Custom Cleats At MLB All-Star Game


Bryce Harper is known for his powerful swing and ridiculous range in the outfield. But during the 2017 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on Tuesday, Harper made a heartfelt gesture with his footwear.

The Washington Nationals star outfielder took the field at Marlins Park in Miami rocking a custom pair of cleats with a painting of the late Jose Fernandez on them.

Fernandez, who was one of the best pitchers in the game, passed away last September in a tragic boating accident.

The late Miami Marlins star also was honored by St. Louis Cardinals ace Carlos Martinez who wrote Fernandez’s initials on the mound before taking the hill in the third inning.
