Yankees GM Brian Cashman injures ankle after skydiving for charity

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman suffered an ankle injury after a parachute jump with the Army Golden Knights. Cashman was participating in the event to raise awareness for the Wounded Warriors Project.

According to the New York Daily News, Cashman completed his first jump with the Golden Knights unscathed. His second attempt, however, didn’t have as smooth as landing as Cashman caught his foot in the ground and “heard a pop” in his ankle.

Cashman was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

"It's an opportunity to do something that a lot of people don't do or will ever do, so that's awesome," Cashman said before the jump. "It's called living. But it's not like on my list of something I've always wanted to do. I'm kind of excited for the opportunity to do it but at the same time, big-time nervous about doing it."

This isn’t the first time the Yankees general manager tested his fear of heights in the name of charity. Cashman had previously rappelled down the side of the Landmark Building in Stamford, Connecticut in 2010.
