Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman and Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine are taking a test run of the 22-story building they'll be rappelling for charity on Sunday.

It wasn't clear which of the brave men had taken a turn Friday morning as SkyFoxHD was overhead the Landmark building in Stamford.

"I don't look down. I'm less scared of it than I was the first year," Cashman told Good Day New York a few weeks earlier.

The event is a fundraiser for various charities including superstorm Sandy relief efforts.

This is the third time Cashman rappells the building; it will be a first for Valentine who hails from Stamford.
