Darryl Strawberry - Former Pro Baseball Player, Author and Speaker

Darryl Strawberry, a former professional baseball right fielder  who played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball, was one of the most feared sluggers in the sport. During his career, he helped lead the New York Mets to a World Series championship and the New York Yankees to three World Series championships and was voted to the All-Star Game eight straight times.  The power he possessed at the plate and his story of redemption, captured in his bestselling memoir, Straw: Finding My Way, continue to bring hope to many lives. Today, as an ordained Minister, Darryl’s purpose and passion is serving the Lord Jesus Christ by helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel. “I was once very lost and tormented but now I am found and free in Christ Jesus. I want everyone to experience the saving and transforming power of Jesus Christ.” -Darryl Strawberry
