A retired Yankees benchwarmer traded his pinstripes for jail stripes today after Long Island cops busted him on kiddie-sex charges, officials said.

Rosendo “Rusty” Torres, 63, allegedly victimized an 8-year-old girl he was coaching on April 30 and yesterday, law enforcement sources said.

Torres was employed as a youth baseball coach for the Town of Oyster Bay and drove a town van where the incidents occurred, authorities said.

“The first incident involved inappropriate touching. In the second incident, there was contact but not actual sexual activity,” a law enforcement source said.
