CHICAGO (AP) -Milwaukee Brewers manager Ned Yost was recovering from a broken collarbone Wednesday, a day after he tripped during a jog near Wrigley Field.
``I felt like an idiot,'' he said.
Yost said he was finishing a run from Lake Michigan on Tuesday when his foot got caught in uneven pavement. He tried to balance himself but fell headfirst, injuring his right collarbone, bruising his hip and scraping his shin.
He went to a hospital and a doctor recommended that Yost have his arm immobilized. Yost declined and returned to the park, where he guided the NL Central-leading Brewers past the Chicago Cubs 4-1.
``The doctor wanted to put it in a sling,'' Yost said. ``I'm fine, really. I didn't sleep (Tuesday night), but it wasn't like I was in pain.''
``I've never hit that hard before in my life,'' he said. ``It's not a big deal. It's just whatever pain you can take. You put it out of your head and go.''
The fall was a first for Yost, an avid runner.
``I usually get here 11:30 or 12, jog down to the lake and I've got a little 3-to-5-mile run that I do everyday,'' he said.
``I was coming back and the sidewalk was all broken up. I caught an edge of one of the broken pieces and man, I slammed. I rolled twice, got up and didn't even miss a beat.''
Yost said he saw the rough pavement ahead.
``It's never happened to me before,'' he said. ``I've been running for 15 years and it's never happened to me. I was prepared for it. It wasn't like it caught me by surprise. I was watching, it just caught my toe.''
