MIAMI (AP) A day after fans said goodbye, family members and friends of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez were set to attend a private funeral Mass on Thursday.

Fernandez and two friends were killed in a boat crash off South Beach early Sunday morning.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, manager Don Mattingly, hitting coach Barry Bonds and the players including Marcel Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton wore white T-shirts emblazoned with Fernandez's image and the letters "RIP" as they slowly walked the hearse away from Marlins Park in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood Wednesday. Many in the crowd of about 1,000 chanted "Jose! Jose!" and some waved Cuban flags in honor of the popular Cuban-American player.
