Florida International infielder Garrett Wittels, who is chasing Robin Ventura's college baseball-record 58-game hitting streak, was charged with raping two 17-year-old girls during a vacation to the Bahamas, the Miami Herald reported. The incident occurred Dec. 20, while Wittels and a group of friends were vacationing at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. He was released on $10,000 bond after a court hearing on Dec. 23. "Anyone can accuse anyone of anything at any time," the hitter's father, Michael Wittels, said in the report. "He's not doing well, obviously. He's blown away. He's devastated that someone would accused him of this."
