  1. Good for Mr–or, rather, Pastor–Strawberry in cleaning his life up. And good on his wife, Tracy, for doing the same thing. “Pastor Strawberry”–I wouldn’t have expected it, either, but I’m sure glad it happened.

    So many of us used to watch him when we were kids and young adults. He was one of the really great “Sultans of Swat” in baseball. That life full of fame, fortune, all that, if you’re not careful, it can lead down a tough road, kinda like what happened with Elvis Presley, too. Unfortunately, Mr. Presley didn’t make it out. But Mr. and Mrs. Strawberry both did. They are examples that you can make it back, if you make the decision to do so.

  2. A friend of mine approached Strawberry 20 years ago with a christian track and his bodyguard stopped him. Strawberry saw what my friend was trying to do and told the bodyguard to let him approach. I believe these were the days Daryl received the Lord Jesus into his life but was struggling. I am so happy he is doing so well!
