This hasn't been confirmed yet, but apparently the small plane which crashed into a building in a Manhattan today wasn't flown by terrorists, but did carry Yankee pitcher and former Oakland Athletic Cory Lidle. Another unidentified person is reported dead, and maybe two others in sporadic and confused online reporting. Lidle last pitched in Game 4 of the ALDS on October 7th.
This article sums up my sentiments pretty well. Condolences to the families of Cory and all the others whose names we don't know.
