Yankees | Lidle's life insurance in question

The Associated Press' Ron Blum reports New York Yankees SP Cory Lidle's beneficiaries could lose out on a $1.5 million benefit from baseball's benefit plan if it's determined that he was piloting his plane when it crashed into a Manhattan high-rise condominium. While Lidle wasn't a member of the Major League Baseball Players Association licensing plan because he was a replacement player during the 1994-95 strike, the New York Yankees pitcher was covered by the union's benefit plan which calls for a $450,000 life insurance benefit and has an accidental death benefit of $1.05 million. The plan contains an exclusion for "any incident related to travel in an aircraft ... while acting in any capacity other than as a passenger."
