Garrett Wittels, who holds the second-longest hitting streak in NCAA baseball history, was charged with rape along with four other men in the Bahamas. The story broke in the Miami Herald.
Two other men were also charged. Wittels’ father, Michael is claiming that the charges are nothing more than allegations and that the Florida International player with soon be vindicated.
According to the article, Wittels ended last season on a 56 game hitting streak, second only to Robin Ventura’s 58 game streak for Oklahoma State in 1987. Technically, the streak is still alive and Wittels could break Ventura’s record early this coming season…if he’s ‘available’, of course.
