New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman broke an ankle skydiving, the team reported Monday.
Cashman went skydiving with the Golden Knights of the US Army at Homestead Air Force Base in Florida to help raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project. After one parachute jump, Cashman went again. However, he injured his ankle when he landed on the second jump. X-rays revealed a broken right fibula and dislocated right ankle.
Cashman was scheduled to undergo surgery Monday at Broward Health Medical Center.
"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."
