Former Baseball Great Darryl Strawberry Claims He Used to Have Sex ‘Between Innings’
Darryl Strawberry — a retired Major League Baseball great who starred with the New York Mets in the 1980s and also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and New York Yankees over his 17-year career — claims that he used to have intercourse during games between innings.
“It was a pretty crazy lifestyle,” Strawberry said on Thursday’s Dr. Oz Show.
Strawberry told host Dr. Mehmet Oz that some of his teammates and coaches used to cover for him during his mid-game hookups.
“In the middle of games, yeah, I would go between innings, and stuff like that, and run back and have a little party going on,” Strawberry said. “I thought it was pretty cool. That’s just the addiction, the drive.”
Strawberry shared the story as part of a segment chronicling his various addictions and subsequent recovery. He maintains that he has been sober for the past decade.
“It’s a behavior that’s not good for anyone,” Strawberry said. “But when you have an addictive personality — like addicts, and alcoholics, and sex addiction — it’s an addictive personality. And we turn it on and turn it off. And it’s not until you have an awakening in your life to get well on the inside, and so many people never get to that place.”
