Yankees GM Brian Cashman breaks leg while skydiving [video]

March 05, 2013|By Houston Mitchell

It's a good thing George Steinbrenner isn't around to see this, because you know he would have given him some grief when he had learned that Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman broke his right leg and dislocated the ankle while skydiving in Florida on Monday.

Cashman jumped with the U.S. Army Golden Knights in a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. He landed badly and suffered a broken fibula and dislocated ankle.

“I'm in great spirits, and it was an awesome experience,” Cashman said in a statement. “The Golden Knights are first class.

"While I certainly didn't intend to raise awareness in exactly this fashion, I'm extremely happy that the Wounded Warrior Project is getting the well-deserved additional attention.”

It was the second jump Cashman made. You can see a video of his first jump, which landed successfully, above.
