Throughout his career, Strawberry slept with a large number of women. During his recent sit down with Dr. Oz, he said that all he had to was point out a woman in the crowd and tell a clubhouse attendant to bring her down.
“It was a pretty crazy lifestyle. Middle of games? Yeah,” Strawberry told Dr. Oz. “I would go between innings, and stuff like that and run back and have a little party going on. I thought it was pretty cool. That’s the addiction.”
Nowadays, Darryl has turned to an evangelist and uses his website www.findingyourway.com to lead people to Jesus.
