Sex Crimes

Former New York Yankees outfielder Rusty Torres convicted of sexually abusing young girl

A former New York Yankees outfielder has been convicted of sexually abusing a young girl.

Rosendo "Rusty" Torres was convicted in a Nassau County court of five counts of sexual abuse Thursday. He faces up to seven years in prison on each count. Sentencing is Oct. 7.

Prosecutors say Torres abused a girl younger than 11 while acting as a youth baseball coach for the town of Oyster Bay, 20 miles east of New York City. They say the abuse happened in spring 2012 during baseball practice sessions in nearby Plainview.

Torres' attorney says he plans to appeal.

The 65-year-old Torres was acquitted of abusing another girl younger than 11.

Torres played for five major league teams beginning in 1971. He ended his career in Kansas City in 1980. He had a .212 lifetime batting average.
