Yankees to honor Lidle by wearing black arm bands
TAMPA, Fla. -- The New York Yankees will honor the memory of Cory Lidle by wearing black arm bands on the left sleeves of their uniforms this season.
Lidle was acquired by the Yankees last summer from Philadelphia, and the 34-year-old pitcher died Oct. 11 when his plane crashed into a Manhattan apartment building.
The Yankees have not assigned No. 30, the number Lidle wore, to anyone this spring training.
