In his wildest dreams, Jose Fernandez could never imagine achieving all he has during his remarkable rookie season. The Marlins' ace reached the big leagues at age 20, and he became the Marlins' lone All-Star. Now the hard-throwing right-hander is a finalist for the National League Rookie of the Year, which will be announced Monday, and the NL Cy Young Award, to be unveiled Wednesday. As much as he accomplished on the field, nothing compares to the personal dream come true for Fernandez on Sunday. To his surprise, Fernandez's grandmother, Olga, arrived from Cuba. The reunion -- complete with photos -- was announced via Twitter by the Marlins. "She's the love of my life ... my everything," Fernandez said via Twitter. Olga was in Miami, and she got to see where her grandson lives and plays ball. During the day, she stopped by Marlins Park, and pictures were taken of her with Fernandez on the mound.
