Darryl Strawberry ‘would go between innings’ to clubhouse for sex

Darryl Strawberry is opening up about one of the many things he's been addicted to during his life: sex.

The flamed-out former Mets and Yankees slugger, who has a history with drug and alcohol abuse, says on Thursday's episode of "The Dr. Oz Show" that he used to get it on in the clubhouse in between innings at the height of his out-of-control MLB days.

"It was pretty crazy," Strawberry said, via TMZ. "I would go between innings, and stuff like that and run back and have a little party going on."

Strawberry also talked about his in-game sex romps last year during an interview with Mad Dog Sports Radio and detailed how he would find his partners with the help of clubhouse attendants.

“You organize it,” he said. “You point her out and tell the kid.”

Strawberry played on those notoriously wild Mets teams in the late 1980s. While they won the World Series in 1986, several members of that team have had well chronicled battles with drugs and alcohol. Teammate Dwight Gooden was a known drug addict who missed the World Series parade because he was feeding his habit. Lenny Dykstra has made a cottage industry off recounting all the drugs he did and women he had sex with during his wild days and nights in the big leagues.

Gooden and Strawberry were the subjects of the searing “Doc & Darryl” 30 for 30 documentary that dove deep into their rise and fall. They remain among the most well known cautionary tales in sports history because of the devastating effect substance abuse had on their captivating careers.

Strawberry, 55, is now a born-again Christian and an ordained minister. He went on to win three more World Series titles as a member of the Yankees, but his looping left-handed swing remains one of the great instances of wasted talent in pro sports.

Strawberry played 17 years in the majors, but he said last year his career would have been much shorter if he were playing today because of social media and cell phones with cameras everywhere.

“They would have seen a lot of things they didn’t need to see,” he said.

That apparently includes whatever went on in the clubhouse between innings.
