'In the middle of games, yeah, I would go between innings, and stuff like that, and run back, and, you know, have a little party going on,' he continued. I mean, that's just the addiction, the drive.' As Strawberry previously revealed, the trysts occurred in the clubhouse, which connected to the dugout and offered some privacy beneath the thousands of fans who were unaware of what was going on below.
Strawberry served an 11-month sentence for a parole violation before being released in April of 2003.
A four-time World Series champion, most notably with the Mets in 1986, Strawberry was named the National League Rookie of the Year in 1983 and finished second in the MVP voting in 1988 behind Dodgers outfielder Kirk Gibson.
When asked to share his favorite Yankee Stadium memory for the building’s 50th anniversary celebration, Mantle wrote a salacious story to then-Vice President Bob Fishel in 1973.‘I got a b***** under the right field [bleachers], by the Yankee [bullpen],' Mantle wrote. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t f*** at the time.'Mantle finishes his Hall of Fame career with 536 regular-season home runs and a record 18 home runs in the World Series.Just because we stand on a platform, we've been successful. And I try to encourage people; you can get healed on the inside.'Odom was once arrested on charges of driving under the influence and eventually pleaded 'no contest' in December of 2013.Two years later he was hospitalized after overdosing at a brothel in Nevada and was ultimately placed on life support.The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, (there are millions of suns left,) You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.The smoke of my own breath, Echoes, ripples, buzz'd whispers, love-root, silk-thread, crotch and vine, My respiration and inspiration, the beating of my heart, the passing of blood and air through my lungs, The sniff of green leaves and dry leaves, and of the shore and dark-color'd sea-rocks, and of hay in the barn, The sound of the belch'd words of my voice loos'd to the eddies of the wind, A few light kisses, a few embraces, a reaching around of arms, The play of shine and shade on the trees as the supple boughs wag, The delight alone or in the rush of the streets, or along the fields and hill-sides, The feeling of health, the full-noon trill, the song of me rising from bed and meeting the sun. 3 I have heard what the talkers were talking, the talk of the beginning and the end, But I do not talk of the beginning or the end.I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.My tongue, every atom of my blood, form'd from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death.There was never any more inception than there is now, Nor any more youth or age than there is now, And will never be any more perfection than there is now, Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.Urge and urge and urge, Always the procreant urge of the world.And we turn it on, and we turn it off.'Now a born-again Christian, Strawberry has taken it upon himself to reach out to athletes who struggle with drugs and alcohol, like former NBA star and Queens native Lamar Odom.'I reached out a couple of times,' Strawberry said.'Tried to reach him, and, and, just to encourage him that his, his life matters, you know, no matter what he's going through.
