STAMFORD, Conn.—New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman spent part of his weekend rappelling down a 350-foot, 22-story building.

Cashman took a few practice runs down the Landmark Building in Stamford on Friday morning, and on Sunday he donned an elf's costume and successfully made the descent for the second straight year, joining "Santa", "The Grinch" and another elf.

The rest of the weekend he spent on the phone listening to trade proposals that did not go anywhere.

Making the descent down one of Stamford's tallest buildings -- with a studded Yankees jacket over his costume -- Cashman displayed his experience from last year for the town's "Heights and Lights" celebration by waving to the crowd and attempting to do some flips.
