Ex-MLB Star Lenny Dykstra "Dumpster Diving" For Hours Outside Sandwich Shop In New Jersey

DATE POSTED:June 19, 2019

Like a fine wine, stories about Lenny Dykstra only get better as he ages. 

Case in point: NJ.com reports that Dykstra was found dumpster diving for 9 hours outside of a Jersey Mike's sub shop in Linden, New Jersey, over the weekend. 

Also case in point: He was looking for his false teeth. 

Also also case in point: He was being helped by a professional wrestler named "Sprinkles The Clown". 

Dykstra told NJ.com: “The bread is so hard on those subs. I took my teeth out and put them in a napkin, folded it up and forget them there.”

He continued: “When I went back, the workers said they threw all the napkins in the garbage. I told them there was no f---- way I was leaving without my f---- teeth.”

Dykstra says the dentures are specially made with bone marrow and cost $80,000. 

His friend, professional wrestler "Sprinkles the Clown" helped him dig through the dumpster and Tweeted about it. 

@shalomshuli you want to come help me and Lenny Dykstra look for his dentures tonight? Or does anyone? This is a serious question...

They spent 9 hours searching and, early on Father's Day morning, Dykstra said he found the teeth. 

He concluded: “I was there for nine hours. I thought the cops were going to arrest me for trespassing. I wasn’t leaving my teeth there in the dumpster. No way was I leaving them.”

Dykstra lost his teeth "after jail guards in Los Angeles beat him in his cell", according to his autobiography.
