MINEOLA - The former New York Yankees outfielder who is accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl apologized for his actions in a disturbing statement to police obtained by News 12 Long Island. "I am very sorry for what I did," the statement by Rosendo "Rusty" Torres says. "I stopped myself before anything bad happened to her. I didn't physically hurt her and will do anything to minimize her hurt... I don't want to work with children anymore, it's too risky. I'm too easy and I think that I should stop." Torres is facing four felony charges of sex abuse for allegedly abusing the young girl on two separate occasions. Sources say both incidents happened on the grounds of the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County in Plainview. The victim's parents reported the alleged abuse to police. Torres' attorney says his client emphatically denies the allegations. The 63-year-old former Major Leaguer lives in North Massapequa and has for years worked for the Town of Oyster Bay as a baseball coach. He played for the Yankees in 1971 and 1972. Prosecutors said they are investigating whether or not there could possibly be more victims. Torres pleaded not guilty and was released this afternoon on $50,000 bail. He is due back in court on Friday. Ex-Yankee from LI accused of abusing 8-year-old girl
