Strawberry agrees to pay IRS

From the Canadian Press:

Former baseball star Darryl Strawberry will pay the IRS more than US$430,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest.

A judgment was signed Tuesday by U.S. district judge Donald M. Middlebrooks. Strawberry was convicted of tax evasion in 1995 over income from autographs and memorabilia. He is agreeing to pay the IRS for tax years 1989 and 1990.

Court papers show that Strawberry has already paid the IRS more than $8,600 of the total amount. They also indicate that Strawberry represented himself in the tax case.

Strawberry was an eight-time all-star and member of two World Series championship teams. He has also battled drug problems and cancer.
