Chuck Knoblauch, who had one of the most popular exits to the sport of baseball with a string of odd events, has seen a further downfall since ending his baseball career in 2002.

In 2007, Knoblauch's name was included in the Mitchell Report in which it was alleged that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his career. In the Mitchell report, Brian McNamee alleges that he procured Human Growth Hormone (HGH) from Kirk Radomski for Knoblauch in 2001 when he served as the New York Yankees assistant strength coach.

Now, Knoblauch has plead guilty for assaulting his wife.

Knoblauch entered his plea Tuesday in exchange for deferred-adjudication probation. Successful completion of his one-year probation could mean the conviction on the assault of a family member would be expunged from the record.

According to a criminal complaint, Knoblauch’s wife told police he hit her in the face and choked her at their Houston home in September.
