Cory Lidel March 22, 1972 - October 11, 2006
Well you all know by now that Cory Lidle perished in a plane crash this afternoon when his plane crashed into a highrise on the Upper East Side. It is a sad sad thing. Not just because he was a Yankee but because this is a tragedy. Lidle played for several teams in his career: New York Mets (1997), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (1999-2000), Oakland Athletics (2001-02), Toronto Blue Jays (2003), Cincinnati Reds (2004), Philadelphia Phillies (2004-2006), and New York Yankees (2006-present). It is a somber day for the Lidle family and NY baseball. If you are interested, below are some of Lidle's stats. Otherwise, I just wanted to give him a little tribute.
