It seems Robin Yount once shot Dale Sveum in the ear

We didn't know the Brewers-Cubs rivalry was that serious.

Of course, the incident wasn't actually born out of any kind of malice. Calling to mind a certain former vice president, it was the result of a freak accident while the former teammates were hunting quail in Arizona. According to Carrie Muskat, Sveum's reaction after being hit by Yount was "unprintable," but thankfully, according to the Cubs manager himself, it was not "that big a deal."
