Darryl Strawberry Chokes Up Under Pressure
Tuesday, March 30, 2010 17:11 GMTST. LOUIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Even baseball icon Darryl Strawberry chokes up under pressure.
Thats what happened to the former New York slugger on The Celebrity Apprentice this past Sunday (Mar. 28) when he abruptly quit the competition.
Strawberry who doesnt think he quit, per say says he left because hed hit a wall and was exhausted.
For the past year, hes had a gruelling, non-stop schedule that included fronting a massive book tour.
By the time he made it to The Celebrity Apprentice, he was pooped out and had nothing left in the tank.
Rather than be the weak link on his team, Strawberry took the sacrifice bunt.
Plus, he was tired of getting up at 5:30 AM each morning to face the daily grind of the business world.
Normally, Strawberry only gets up before 8 AM if hes teeing off on the golf course. Otherwise, he adds, I have no reason to get up that early.
