The New York Yankees may be months from playing at Yankee Stadium, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t being put to good use. Yankee’s general manager Brian Cashman is again bringing attention to the nation’s homeless youth by sleeping in the field at Yankee Stadium.

Cashman is known for doing good for many charities and causes. Cashman slept on the field Thursday night at Yankee Stadium in support of The Covenant House nonprofit. The entire New York Yankee organization is fully supportive of the Bronx and New York communities. Covenant House is one of Brian Cashman’s favorite causes.



Covenant House provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness. We help young people transform their lives and put them on a path to independence.
