ESPN, Fox Sports, and several other sources have reported that Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle was in a plane that crashed into a building in New York City. Lidle's passport was found on the ground at the scene and the sources are reporting that Lidle is dead. Not to be forgotten, three others are also reported dead.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will not confirm the identities of the deceased.

Stay tuned for more...

8:00 PM Update - Cory Lidle's death has been confirmed, along with one other death (initially believed to be a total of four dead). He leaves behind a wife and six year-old son. Unbelievable. Thankfully, due to the rain in New York, Major League Baseball didn't have to deal with whether or not to cancel tonight's Mets-Cardinals NLCS Game 1. Mother Nature made it easy on Commissioner Bud Selig.
