Moments ago it was reported by an anonymous source within the Federal Aviation Administration that the plane that crashed into The Belaire apartment high rise in Manhattan was registered to former Phillies pitcher Cory Lidle. The Yankees pitcher was piloting the plane this afternoon along with another person and both are considered dead. Four others were killed as a result of the crash. Information is still becoming available and we will keep you posted if any information is revised.
Most importantly, the staff of PhilliesNation.com would like to send its prayers and sympathies to Cory’s family including his wife Melanie and his son Chris during this tragic time.
