NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- 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.
 
"The bird was in front of him and I was about 50 yards up on a hill," Sveum said Tuesday at baseball's winter meetings. "He got the bird up and lost track of where I was. He pulled the trigger and was like, 'Uh, oh.' "
 
Sveum was hit in the back of the right ear by the spray pattern from a six-shot.
