2006: New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle dies when the small aircraft he owns crashes into a 42-story apartment building in New York City. Also killed was certified flight instructor Tyler Stanger. The National Transportation Safety Board would later find that the probable cause of the crash was pilot error, but was unable to determine whether Lidle or Stanger was flying the aircraft at the time of the crash. Lidle, who was 34 when he died, spent eight seasons in the MLB, also pitching for the New York Mets, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays, Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies.
