Yount shoots Sveum

 

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum says he was accidentally shot in the right ear and back by former teammate Robin Yount during a recent quail hunt in Arizona. Sveum brushed off the mishap Tuesday at the baseball winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn. Sveum said the pellets drew blood, but he didn’t need stitches. Sveum and the Hall of Famer played together in Milwaukee and are hunting partners. Sveum said he was about 50 yards ahead of Yount when a bird went up. Yount pulled the trigger, but had lost track of Sveum and hit him. “You don’t get hit very often,” Sveum said. “It’s not that big a deal.” Yount got the bird. – Associated Press
