Heat to honor late Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez with moment of silence, shooting shirts with his initials

Back of Jose Fernandez shooting shirtsThe Miami Heat will honor the memory of Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, who died in a tragic boating accident on Sept. 25, by wearing specially designed shooting shirts with his initials and number on it before their preseason home opener Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Additionally, there will be a moment of silence to honor Fernandez, a two-time All-Star and one of the game's brightest young stars.

Several South Florida sports teams have observed a moment of silence or worn a special patch or sticker on their helmets to honor Fernandez's memory.

The Miami Hurricanes wore a patch to honor Fernandez on their football helmets two weeks ago in a game at Georgia Tech.
