Chad Curtis, the former outfielder for the New York Yankees widely remembered for his walk-off homer to win Game 3 of the 1999 World Series, was charged Thursday with five counts of criminal sexual conduct, according to CBSsports.com.

In the report, two teenage girls have accused him of touching them at a Lakewood High School in Woodland, Mich., where Curtis is a volunteer and was to become the high schools football coach. CBSsports.com said that Barry County prosecutor Tom Evans told WZZM-TV, the local news outlet, that he has authorized the charges against Curtis and that David Dodge Sr., who is representing Curtis, said his client "denies any criminal wrongdoing."
