Former Minnesota Twins All-Star second baseman Chuck Knoblauch was arrested on July 23 for allegedly assaulting his ex-wife.

Former Minnesota Twins All-Star second baseman Chuck Knoblauch was arrested on July 23 for allegedly assaulting his ex-wife. 

As a result, the team canceled his Twins Hall of Fame induction ceremony scheduled for Aug. 23, per MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger: 

"In the wake of recent news, The Twins announced they have canceled Chuck Knoblauch's 2014 Twins Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which had been scheduled for Aug. 23 at Target Field.

"Knoblauch, 46, was arrested Wednesday night and stands accused of assaulting his ex-wife, Cheri, according to KHOU-TV in Houston. The former Twins second baseman was charged with assault of a family member, according to the report. 

"Knoblauch and his ex-wife divorced in 2012. He previously was convicted of hitting his first wife in 2010 and was sentenced to a year of probation. 

"Twins president Dave St. Peter said the club became aware of Knoblauch's arrest early Thursday, and he spoke twice via phone with Knoblauch, who agreed it was for the best to cancel his Hall of Fame induction ceremony. 

"'We thought today's course of action was certainly in the best interest of the Minnesota Twins organization,' St. Peter said. 'Ultimately, I think it's also in the best interest for Chuck and his family -- and most importantly for our members in our Hall of Fame. It's something ownership and I felt very strongly about. And it's something Chuck Knoblauch feels strongly about. He's saddened and disappointed.'

"Knoblauch was elected to the club's Hall of Fame in January but now will not be inducted. A 62-member committee consisting of local and national media, club officials, fans and past elected members voted him in using rules similar to the voting process for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. 

"Created in 2000, the Twins Hall of Fame has 26 inductees, including players, managers, broadcasters, owners and members of the club's front office. But Knoblauch will no longer be a part of that group, and the Twins have no plans to reschedule his induction.

"'Never is a strong word, but there are no plans to reschedule,' St. Peter said. 'At a later time it could be revisited, but at this time, we have no current intent to reschedule.'"  

According to Houston's News 92 FM, Knoblauch "appeared to be intoxicated" during the incident. He is due in court on July 30: 

"Former MLB All-Star second baseman and Bellaire High School star athlete Chuck Knoblauch is in trouble again. 

"He is out of jail on a $10,000 bond and is charged with misdemeanor assault on a family member. He's due in court July 30. 

"According to court documents, he's accused of hitting his wife. 

"Memorial Villages police were called to their home on Forest Glen around 4 a.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived, they said Knoblauch appeared to be intoxicated. 

"Police said Knoblauch's wife told them she was asleep in her child's room when her husband came in, upset that he wasn't sleeping in their bed. He allegedly grabbed her by the arm and started smashing her head into a wall. 

"Knoblauch is accused of throwing a humidifier at her before she ran from the room. 

"Police said Knoblauch's wife had a large bruise on her arm, a large scratch on the left side of her face and a visible knot on her forehead. 

"Back in 2009, felony charges were dismissed in an incident in which Knoblauch was accused of choking his then-common-law-wife Stacey Stelmach at their Bunker Hill Village home. 

"According to court records, he also got a one-year deferred adjudication and a fine in a 2010 charge of assault on a family member. 

 

"And it doesn't end there. He was also charged with interference with public duties after allegedly pushing an officer in March of this year. Knoblauch is due in court on that charge next month." 

Knoblauch also suited up for the New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals in his 12-year MLB career which saw him amassing 1,839 hits, 98 home runs and 615 RBIs in 1,632 career regular-season games, per Baseball-Reference.com.
