Yankee mourning

This was a bad season for the New York Yankees; and not only because they failed to make it to the playoffs. In an airplane accident that reminded lots of people about the 9/11, Cory Lidle, a pitcher for such team, died yesterday.
According to some newspapers, the causes of the accident in which Lidle crashed his small Cirrus SR20 airplane against a luxury apartment building in Manhattan have not been determined yet; however, the sad part of this that a young sportsman died (and I wonder if there were any inhabitants of the apartment in which the aircraft crashed - hopefully not).
Lidle spoke many times to the media about his interest in flying, and the joy he had while flying his plane. So this was, along with baseball, his passion.
The Yankees, the MLB and the whole sports world are mourning this tragedy.
