Cyr also had ten seasons in minor league, foreign and independent ball. His foreign experience was in the Venezuelan Winter League and the Chinese Professional Baseball League while his independent experience was with Les Capitales de Québec.

In 2001, Cyr plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl after an incident on a flight from New Zealand to Los Angeles a couple of years earlier, when he was barely older than the victim. He spent 30 days in jail.
