  • John Wetteland in his Denton County Jail booking

The team's manager at the time, Frank Robinson, claimed that Wetteland was too focused on "practical jokes and fooling around" rather than concentrating on the game, the Dallas Morning News Reports.

John Wetteland, the former Yankees and Rangers closer, was arrested Monday on child sex abuse charges, the Dallas Morning News reported. Dowell said Wetteland was released that same day on $25,000 bail.

He's also been inducted into the Texas Rangers' Hall of Fame.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services referred the case to Bartonville police on January 9, Chief Bobby Dowell said.

Police officers who responded to Wetteland's home at the time said they responded to a call about a suicidal man, according to the New York Daily News.

Jason Garrett backpedals comments on potential coaching changes
What was not seen in the past few weeks were teams bringing in conservative, unimaginative head coaches - things Garrett is. Garrett has been the Cowboys' coach since November 2010, when he was moved to interim status after Wade Phillips' firing.

The 1996 World Series MVP taught middle school bible studies and served as an assistant baseball coach at Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas during the 2007-08 school year, a representative told Dailymail.com.

He forced a relative to perform a sex act on him, according to his arrest-warrant affidavit, beginning in 2004 when the child was 4 years old. In 12 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Yankees and Rangers, he racked up 330 saves with a 2.93 ERA.

Following his pitching career, Wetteland became the bullpen coach for the Washington Nationals, but was sacked in 2006. He was sacked from the Nationals during the 2006 season by then-manager Frank Robinson for reportedly focusing on practical jokes instead of the game. "He just didn't seem to understand", he said.

The actual booking charge for Wetteland is first degree felony continuous sex abuse of a child; if convicted, the charge could carry up to a LIFE term. Authorities believe the abuse continued at least two more times in the years following.
