FIU baseball player Garrett Wittels arrested and charged with rape in the Bahamas
Remember last summer when Florida International shortstop Garrett Wittels hit in 56 straight games? And remember how the streak is still alive because his team got eliminated from the NCAA tournament? Yeah, well, he has other things on his mind at the moment:
Wittels’ father is quoted in the article saying it’s a frame-up, perpetrated by a couple of girls taking advantage of Wittels’ fame. We obviously have no idea.
Wittles stands two-games shy of Robin Ventura’s NCAA record hitting streak. It’s unclear if his arrest will have any impact on his ability to begin the 2011 season.
