GM Stung By Scorpion

GM Stung By Scorpion, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin is back at spring training after a scorpion sting landed him in the hospital.

Melvin says he thought he saw a bug scurrying across the floor of his condominium Wednesday night and bent down to pick it up with a tissue. It turned out to be a scorpion and he got stung.

Melvin said Thursday that he spent three hours at a hospital. He says he suffered a ''little tingling and shock and discomfort'' in his left arm, but now describes it as no big deal.
