Celebrity Apprentice: Darryl Strawberry Doesn’t Regret Quitting

April 02, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


Darryl Strawberry, is only the third person in the history of NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice and The Apprentice to quit the competition on his own accord, but the former pro baseball player has no regrets. He also claims that there’s no hard feelings between he and Donald Trump because of his early departure. Strawberry opens up about the real reason he quit and the generous way that Donald Trump reached out to him…

Darryl Strawberry shocked viewers of NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice when he opted to quit the competition instead of leaving the traditional way, by being fired by Donald Trump. The retired baseball player says the decision to quit came as a result of feeling exhausted after a long, busy year. ”I just hit a point where I was totally exhausted. I was running around and I just had nothing left in the tank,” Strawberry said. “It wasn’t anything personal. It wasn’t about quitting.”

Strawberry also claims that his decision to quit NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice was in an effort to help his team out. ”Everybody was, you know, kind of throwing each other under the bus from time to time because nobody wants to leave,” Strawberry said. “In my case, I figured I’ll be the one to depart and let the team go forth. … It wasn’t about me. It was about the team. So I have no regrets.”

Fortunately, NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice‘s star, Donald Trump, has no hard feelings for the retired World Series champ. ”I believe that Mr. Trump truly has a good feeling for me,” Strawberry says. “He invited me back for the final two. I came back to help out in the last task. He thanked me for coming back and told me I was a good sport. And he also donated $25,000 to my charity [The Darryl Strawberry Foundation].”
