Darryl Strawberry is a former MLB player and the number one overall selection in the 1980 MLB Amateur Draft by the New York Mets. He made his MLB debut in May 1983 and became a seven-time All-Star for the Mets from 1984-1990. A member of the 1986 World Championship team, Strawberry’s 252 career home runs remain at the top of the Mets’ all-time list.
In 1991, Strawberry signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers. A short stint with the Giants followed, and then Strawberry returned to New York and helped the Yankees win three World Series titles in 1996, ’98 and ’99.
After many years of struggling with substance abuse and addiction, Strawberry has been sober for more than a decade now and spreads the Good News of Jesus across the country as a traveling evangelist. His new book "Turn Your Season Around" released in January 2021.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Darryl about discipleship, his new book, how his faith deepened in 2020 and the importance of leaving a legacy that points to Jesus.
