chuck-knoblauch-wife.jpgFormer second baseman and wild-throw enthusiast Chuck Knoblauch Tuesday pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault on his common-law wife.

Court records show Knoblauch agreed to the guilty plea in exchange for one year of probation and a fine of $1,000. If he successfully completes the probation, the conviction could be erased from his record.

A criminal complaint states that the former Twin and Yankee hit and choked his wife during a September argument in Houston.

Knoblauch won the 1991 American League Rookie of the Year award and was selected to four All-Star teams.
