    Pitcher John Wetteland Arrested for Child Sex Abuse

    The former MLB closer was arrested this week in Denton County, Texas, on charges that he sexually abused a minor over the span of two years. Wetteland, a Rangers franchise Hall of Famer, retired in 2000 as the team’s all-time saves leader. He earned a World Series MVP honor with the Yankees in 1996. The 52-year-old stands accused of beginning the abuse when the child was 4 years old. If convicted, Wetteland — who posted a $25,000 bond — faces a minimum of 25 years in prison.
