AROUND THE WEB:

— The Marlins held a pregame ceremony Monday night to honor Jose Fernandez, the 24-year-old pitcher who died in a boating accident early Sunday morning. The players all wore jerseys with the number 16 and “Fernandez” written on the back as they played the Mets on a night when Fernandez had been schedule to pitch.

Things really got emotional when Marlins leadoff batter Dee Gordon took his first pitch batting from the right side while wearing Fernandez’s helmet, as a tribute to his late friend. He then switched helmets and switched to the left batter’s box — and proceeded to hit his first home run of the season. Gordon started crying as he rounded the bases. He tapped his chest and looked skyward after crossing home plate, and he was greeted in the dugout by his equally emotional teammates.

Gordon, who called it the most difficult game he’s every played, said he didn’t even remember circling the bases.

“It seemed like it took forever,” he said. “I was trying to get back to my teammates as fast as possible. I was just wondering why Jose wasn’t there standing on the top step cheering for me.”

Teammate Giancarlo Stanton said he had trouble seeing the ball during his plate appearances.

“We were hitting balls underwater pretty much,” Stanton said after Miami’s 7-3 victory. “Our eyes were full of water.”

Stanton gave a speech to his teammates just before the start of the game, but he said he can’t remember the content.

“Honestly I went kind of numb in that moment,” Stanton said. “I don’t know if I was stuttering. I don’t even know if I was saying the right stuff. A lot of us were talking about ‘Why are we here right now? What’s the main purpose of this? How do we get through this together?’ I was trying to ease all that, telling them we’re all here for Jose. We’re the last hope and the last heart for him, and we need to come together, as hard as it’s going to be.”

Mets players joined the Marlins for hugs after the national anthem, which was preceded by a slow version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” played by trumpet.

“Hearts are heavy,” Mets outfielder Jay Bruce said. “From a professional standpoint, you just try to prepare and play the game and respect the game. But I can’t even imagine what it’s like over in that other clubhouse.”

— Former Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy remains a free agent, and Monday’s arrest for possession of cocaine won’t help his bid to return to the NFL.

Hardy, who was suspended for the first four games of last season for a domestic violence incident in 2014 when he played for the Panthers, had been stopped on a traffic violation in a Dallas suburb when he was arrested.

According to the police report, Hardy said “he did not know what the substance was and that he believed he got it while he was at a party the night previous.”

Hardy, 28, was released on $5,000 bond Monday afternoon.
