Darryl Eugene Strawberry, Sr. was (born March 12, 1962) The American former Major League Baseball right fielder is an ordained Christian minister and author. Strawberry is well known for his career in baseball and his controversial personal life. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Strawberry was one of the most feared sluggers in the game, known for his prodigious home runs and his intimidating presence in the batter's box with his 6-foot-6 frame and his long, looping swing that elicited comparisons to Ted Williams.
Since the 1986 World Series, both baseball players have struggled with addiction. Doc says he hasn’t used drugs in five years.
The California native was one of the most dynamic offensive threats in baseball at his peak. He hit at least 25 home runs in each of his first nine MLB seasons starting in 1983, when he was named Rookie of the Year. His resume also includes eight All-Star selections and four World Series titles.His drug addiction overshadowed his on-field success, though. Cocaine abuse led to three suspensions before his playing career ended in 1999.Strawberry's life has changed since those darker days. In 2013, he told Bob Nightengale of USA Today he had become an ordained Christian minister and wanted to start carving out a new life, leaving his baseball years, both good and bad, in the past. "I'm over 'Strawberry,'" he said. "I'm over Mets. I'm over Yankees. I don't want to exist as Darryl Strawberry, the baseball player. People don't understand that's no longer you. I'm not a baseball player, anymore.That person is dead."However, the documentary has brought his career back to the forefront. Based on his comments Thursday, it might have been a wilder journey than most fans imagined.
Surprisingly,Darryl Strawberry net worth is only $2m.You would have expected a man who was so successful in his career to be worth a lot more than that.But i guess the fast and reckless life does eventually play a part in what net worth you end up with.
His partner in crime has not fared much better either,Doc Gooden net worth is reportedly to be $2.5m.Looks like they were really in harmony,those two.
