He couldn’t have scored without them. Horndog Mets legend Darryl Strawberry revealed Thursday how he used to round the bases with groupies — even between innings during games — with the help of teammates and coaches. The eight-time All-Star outfielder told Dr. Oz that he would enlist locker-room attendants to fetch frisky female fans from the stands and then get it on with them in the clubhouse in between stints on the field — aided by some very helpful teammates and coaches. “Some of them covered for me,” he said of the players and team staffers. “They were pretty cool.” Strawberry, 55, revealed his game-time sex shenanigans on Mad Dog’s Sirius XM Show last year — but this was the first time he talked about getting help from other Mets. Dr. Oz had been quizzing Strawberry about his battles with sex and drug addiction. “You actually, in the middle of games, were so addicted to sex, that you would actually go out and have sex, between innings?” an astonished Dr. Oz asked. “Yeah, it was pretty crazy,” Strawberry, a four-time World Series Champion, replied. “It was a pretty crazy lifestyle. “You know, I thought it was pretty cool. I mean, that’s just the addiction, the drive.’’ Former teammates reached Thursday couldn’t recall witnessing the slugger’s dirty deeds. “I never heard anything about it. Honest to God, I was watching the pitcher,” rightfielder Rusty Staub. Outfielder Lenny Dykstra added, “When I played baseball I actually cared about winning. “I wasn’t in the clubhouse jerking off or whatever he was doing.” While playing for the Yankees in 1999, Strawberry was suspended for 140 games for attempting to solicit sex from an undercover police officer in Florida. Now a born-again Christian, Strawberry said he’s taken it upon himself to reach out to athletes who struggle with drugs and alcohol. He told Dr. Oz he tried contacting former NBA player and Queens native Lamar Odom, who admitted he was addicted to cocaine earlier this year.
