ESPN – Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum was accidentally hit in the ear with shrapnel while hunting this offseason with Hall of Famer Robin Yount.
The two were hunting quail in Arizona when Yount bagged a bird, but also Sveum.
Isn’t that something, huh? Robin Yount must be scared that the Cubs may actually get close enough to choke on the World Series in 2013. I like Dale Sveum and his chances of bringing the Commissioners trophy to the North Side of the Windy City. What I don’t like about him is that he isn’t aware of his surroundings while hunting.
I got to tip my hat that this is news at the Winter Meetings down in Nashville. Next time it is in a cool city, I am taking a few days off and going. I heard it’s an absolute blast if you love baseball.
Get well soon Dale, you got a big task ahead of you for 2013: Make the playoffs, beat National League foes, beat an American League foe, and defeat the Billy Goat.
