David Samson, president of the Marlins, was visibly moved as he recalled to reporters at a press conference how Fernandez had once told him: 'You were born into freedom, you don't understand freedom really.' 'He told one of his teammates that the last game he pitched, against the Nationals, was the best game he ever pitched,' Miami third baseman Martin Prado said, his voice breaking.
