Episode 130: The Life of a Legend: Darryl Strawberry

Join Jonathan as he sits down with famed baseball player and sports legend, Darryl Strawberry. 

Darryl Strawberry is a former professional baseball player, who rose to fame in 1980 and became the number one draft pick at the age of 18. Three years later he became Rookie of The Year, and went on to play 17 seasons in Major League Baseball. He was one of the most feared sluggers in the sport, known for his home runs. During his baseball career he helped lead the New York Mets to a World Series Championship and the New York Yankees to three World Series Championships.

In this special episode, Darryl shares with us his incredible story from a childhood of abuse, to a fast rise to fame. His struggles of drug abuse, and chasing a life with no meaning left him empty. Through trials and pain he realized there was so much more in life by finding Christ and walking in true discipleship with the Lord.  

We hope this episode encourages you in you walk with Christ and the importance of discipleship in your own life.
