Former Tampa Bay Rays pitcher and current Keswick Christian baseball coach Seth McClung was arrested Monday on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge.

McClung was booked at 12:41 a.m. Monday and held on $500 bond, then was released at 7:04 p.m. the same day, according to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office arrest report.

McClung, 34, is in his first year as head coach of the Crusaders baseball team. They were 10-3 prior to Tuesday's game against West High School of Knoxville, Tenn. Before coaching baseball at Keswick, McClung coached girls basketball for two seasons at Pinellas Park and two more at Osceola.

As a right-handed pitcher, McClung played for the Rays from 2003-06 and for Milwaukee from 2007-09. He attempted a comeback last spring with Pittsburgh but was released. He was hired by Keswick on April 8.

Calls to McClung and Keswick Christian School were not immediately returned.
