Ex-World Series MVP John Wetteland Accused of Child Sex Abuse

John Wetteland, the 1996 World Series MVP, was arrested Monday on one charge of child sexual abuse, according to a report from The Dallas Morning News. The News notes that the former player, who pitched for the Yankees, Dodgers, Expos, and Rangers, stands accused of “continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14,” but did not provide more specific information. Wetteland reportedly posted bond on the day he was arrested, and has since been released from custody. At one time, he also reportedly coached baseball and worked as a bible studies teacher at Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas—but he does not appear to be affiliated with the school at this time.
