BASEBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE MAJORS : Yount Sits for Cycle as Number's Retired

Associated Press

Robin Yount rode off into the right field bullpen on his new Harley-Davidson motorcycle after the Milwaukee Brewers retired his No. 19.

Yount, who rode into County Stadium on a motorcycle during a post-World Series celebration in 1982, took one victory lap, then drove out of the stadium on the motorcycle given to him by the Brewers and Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Co. during a ceremony before Milwaukee's game against Seattle.

Yount, 38, retired in February after 20 seasons in the major leagues, all in Milwaukee.

The Florida Marlins placed reliever Bryan Harvey on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 26 because of a strained muscle in his left elbow and signed free agent infielder Mario Diaz.
