The 1980s were a wild time.

Former star outfielder Darryl Strawberry hit 335 home runs in his MLB career, and that's only counting on the field.

Apparently the Straw Man was a pretty big slugger in the clubhouse. During an interview on the Dr. Oz Show, Strawberry admitted that his sex addiction was so out of control during his major league tenure that he would sometimes sneak women into the clubhouse and have sex with them.

"It was pretty crazy," Strawberry said. "All addictions have to do with behavior. If I never change the behavior I'll never get rid of it...In the middle of games, 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."

Strawberry added that he had teammates cover for him on occasion. He went on to say that he has battled his addictions and calls his old actions "not good for anyone," adding that he has reached out to former NBA star Lamar Odom to offer assistance in Odom's battle with substance abuse.
