    Cubs' Sveum accidentally shot by Yount on hunt

    Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum says he's OK after former teammate Robin Yount accidentally shot him in the right ear and back with pellets during a recent quail hunt in Arizona.
    Sveum brushed off the bloody mishap Tuesday at the baseball winter meetings and said he didn't need stitches.
    "You don't get hit very often," Sveum said. "It's not that big a deal."
    Sveum and Yount played together in Milwaukee and are hunting partners. Sveum said he was about 50 yards ahead of the Hall of Famer went the accident occurred.
    "The bird got up in front of him, and he lost track of where I was and pulled the trigger," Sveum said. "I was just looking for birds myself. It was behind me, so I got drilled with pellets in the back and one stuck in the ear."
    Sveum said he and Yount have fired near each other in the past.
    "Well, not that close," he said.
    Yount got the bird, plus some razzing from his friend. Sveum said he started calling him "Dick Cheney," a reference to the former vice president who once accidentally shot a friend while hunting.
