A History of Sports Champions With Rap Sheets

Luis Polonia

Team(s): Atlanta Braves (1995); New York Yankees (2000)
Champion: World Series (1995, 2000)
Offense(s): Sex with a minor
Sentence: 60 days

Luis Polonia wasn't the amazing standout player who led his two World Series title teams to victory. However, when he did get an opportunity, Polonia consistently impressed with his speed. But, during his career, Polonia's quickness couldn't help him escape the long arm of the law after he had sex with a 15-year-old girl at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, which is where him and the rest of his Yankees teammates were staying at the time. Polonia eventually received a 60-day sentence that he served at the conclusion of the season.
