The Adversity Advantage


Feb 28, 2022

Today, we welcome former MLB player Darryl Strawberry. Darryl played 17 years in the major leagues, he won four world series, and went to eight all-star games. But today we're gonna have a much different conversation. We're gonna talk about Darryl's incredible redemption story of hope, faith, and recovery. 

We discuss the challenges of being a top performing athlete and the pressure that comes with, how the pressure pushed him to a destructive lifestyle and addiction, and how faith ultimately led him to reformation and redemption.
