BREAKING: Ex-A's pitcher Cory Lidle dies in accidental NYC plane crash

In a scene that brought back memories of 9/11, a plane crashed into a luxury high rise apartment building today in Manhattan. As tensions have calmed and experts have had a chance to investigate, all evidence points to an accident. The plane involved was a small 4-seat single-wing aircraft.

Cory Lidle, who has a pilot's license, was confirmed aboard the plane, and is believed to have been the pilot.

He was only 34 years old.

Cory Lidle was a starting pitcher for the A's back in 2001 and 2002 and pitched for the A's in the post-season, and most recently had been pitching with the Yankees.

I have been following the news of the crash all day, but was schocked just now to find out that Cory Lidle was onboard the plane.
