I’m not making this up. If that headline doesn’t get every late 80’s and early 90’s baseball fan to visit this site, I really don’t know what else to do. Every one of you should be digging through your 5000 count box of over produced 1989 Topps cards to find your 30 copies of Dale Sveum. It’s this one right here. Go find it.
Robin Yount and Dale Sveum were out hunting quail together and Yount accidentally peppered Sveum with some shotgun pellets while shooting at a bird. Since Sveum was relatively unharmed by the incident, I think I can safely say that this story has more 80’s baseball awesomeness in it than anything I’ve read in a while. The only thing that would make it better is if this guy shot him. Then I could write: “Dale Sveum Shot by Deer in Woods.”
