Darryl Strawberry was a major league baseball star in the 1980s and 1990s.
He played 17 seasons, starting with the New York Mets, then went to the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco, and finished with the New York Yankees.
Strawberry played in three World Series.
He was the guest speaker at last Sunday’s banquet for the Southern District of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), held at Greenville University. Prior to the event, Jeff Leidel sat down with Strawberry and they talked about baseball, his ministry, and Bill Buckner, Joe Torre and Gary Carter.
Strawberry was drafted out of high school and spent just two and one-half years in the minor leagues. He was asked about playing baseball as a youth in Los Angeles.
