    Very different atmosphere from ANY game I've witnessed.
    ( closest...maybe the first home NY Met game after 9/11 ?)
    But an incredible moment -
    try to watch a MLB highlight of this amazing scene !
    First batter for Marlins ( Dee Gorden ) bats from the right batter's box -
    wearing Jose Fernandez' batting helmut .
    Takes a pitch....then switches to his normal ( left ) side.
    Then, proceeds to CRUSH a ball into the upper deck !.....what a bomb !
    He said later "It was farther than any ball I've ever hit in batting practice."
    As he rounds the bases......he's crying.
    At the dugout, everyone has hugs + tears.
    My god !..........what a moment !
    I had tears, myself.
