Well Dick isn’t the only one. During an off-season trip Hall of Famer Robin Yount and Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum went on a hunting trip and there was a little accident.

While Yount was shooting somehow Sveum got in the line of fire and took a few pellets to the back and one pellet stuck in the back of Sveum’s ear.

Pretty nasty stuff; this is how Sveum explained the it all went down, “the bird was in front of him and I was about 50 yards up on a hill.” “He got the bird up and lost track of where I was. He pulled the trigger and was like, ‘Uh, oh,” Sveum explained.

Hunting is a pretty tough sport when you always have to watch out for friendly fire, I’m sure Sveum never planned on being the hunted instead of the hunter. Though being shot is probably how the season felt as the Cubs manager.
