Rusty Torres, an outfielder who played for five major league teams in a career spanning 1972-1980, faces sex abuse charges in New York after allegedly abusing an 8-year-old boy.
Prosecutors say Torres worked for the Town of Oyster Bay as a baseball coach. They say an 8-year-old was sexually abused inside a town-issued van. The victim’s parents reported the incident to police on Monday, and now Torres, 63, is due to be arraigned on four misdemeanor counts on Wednesday.
Torres played for the Yankees, Indians, Angels, White Sox and Royals in nine seasons, hitting .212/.301/.334 with 35 homers and 126 RBI in 1,314 at-bats. His best season came in 1976, when he hit .205/.299/.356 with six homers and 27 RBI in 264 at-bats for the Angels.
