The Associated Press has confirmed that this afternoon, Cory Lidle was killed in a plane crash this afternoon, after the plane that he was in crashed into a condo building on the Upper East Side. There are reports flying all over the place, but this is something that the AP has already confirmed.
Though he did come over in a mid-season trade, he was well liked, and really didnt make a commotion in the clubhouse. My condolences go out to the Lidle family, and the Yankee family mourns your loss. This is a tragic event, and no matter what team you root for, MLB lost a member of the baseball family today.
