Merry Christmas From The Yankees

New York Yankee season ticket holders got a shock when they were mailed a flyer for a limited-edition "Yankees Victory Plane" Christmas Ornament. Included was a picture of Santa piloting a plane (with the Yankee logo) into a Christmas Tree.

The timing is bad, not because Christmas is still months away, but because earlier this month Cory Lidle, a pitcher for The Yanks, was killed in a horrible plane accident.

The Danbury Mint produced the $19.99 ornament.
