It was exactly one year ago that news broke of Brian Cashman’s decision to rappel down a building as part of Stamford’s Heights & Lights celebration.
Today, it was announced that Cashman will do it again.
As he indicated at the GM Meetings, Cashman will once again rappel down the 22-story Landmark Building for the annual holiday festivity. The main event is Sunday night, Dec. 4, at 5 p.m.
Cashman will also rappel down the building on Friday morning, participating in a special live broadcast with Rick Reichmuth of FOX News Channel, “FOX & Friends.”
