Yankees GM Brian Cashman Breaks Right Fibula, Dislocates Ankle While Skydiving
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went skydiving on Monday, and he really enjoyed the first jump.
He enjoyed it so much that he decided to go again.
That didn’t end too well.
The GM, who was parachuting in the Miami area with military skydivers, broke his right fibula and dislocated his right ankle on the second go-round.
The injury was confirmed by the Yankees via Twitter. The general manager is scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday.
Despite the injury, Cashman appeared to be in good spirits. On his way to the hospital, he texted to WFAN’s Sweeny Murti: “It was awesome.”
He also texted to Murti: “First jump great second oops.”
Cashman jumped to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project, which “provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life,” according to its website.
