Texas Rangers Hall of Fame pitcher John Wetteland was arrested Monday on a child sex abuse charge.
Wetteland, 52, is accused of continuously sexually abusing a child under the age of 14, according to Denton County jail records. The Trophy Club resident posted $25,000 bond.
A long-time born-again Christian, he has coached baseball and taught Bible studies at Liberty Christian School in Argyle, but apparently has no connection to the school at this time. School officials did not immediately return requests for background.
Wetteland retired as the Rangers' all-time saves leader with 150 after the 2000 season and was inducted into the team Hall of Fame in 2005.
He later worked as a bullpen coach for the Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners, but both tenures included disturbing incidents.
The Nationals fired him during the 2006 season for a series of practical jokes and transgressions at the behest of then-manager Frank Robinson.
