Darryl Strawberry, the troubled 8x All-Star, 4x World Series champion and Rookie of the Year said on The Dr. Oz Show that his sex addiction led him to the point that he was having sex between innings.

"It was pretty crazy. All addictions has to do with behavior. If I never changed the behavior, I could never get well from it. And we can stay in the addiction as long as we want to, and middle of games, yeah, I would go between innings and stuff like that and run back and have a little party going on, and, you know, I thought it was pretty cool. I mean, that's just the addiction, the drive."

According to Strawberry, he was able to get away with it because certain teammates and coaches had his back.

"Well, some of them covered for me. It was pretty cool."

This is not the first time Strawberry mentions this type of behavior, during an interview on SIriusXM while promoting ESPN's 30 for 30 "Doc & Darryl" he also talked about how he picked out women to have sex with and sent an clubhouse assistant to get her.

"It kind of worked out that way. You organize and point her out and tell the kid." 

Strawberry who battled substance abuse during his career and has struggled with depression since retiring, told the Los Angeles Times his age had a lot to do with his struggles.

"I'm 21, 22, 23, and at that age you never think your life can be derailed. So I became addicted to all of it - the womanizing, amphetamines, cocaine, being rich."

The left-handed slugger who was known for his impressive strength and tape measure shots played 17 seasons in the Big Leagues with the Dodgers, Giants, Mets and Yankees.

He won one title with the Mets in 1986 and three with the Yankees in 1996, 1998 and 1999.
