FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – NewsChannel 15’s Kaitor Kposowa interviewed former MLB slugger and four-time world series champion Darryl Strawberry ahead of the annual Celebration & Stewardship Banquet hosted by The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission Friday evening.
Strawberry, now an ordained Christian minister and author, talked about his life struggles and his religious beliefs. He said people aren’t perfect, and can be redeemed and liberated.
During his 17-year baseball career, he played for the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Fransisco Giants, and New York Yankees. He helped lead the Mets to a World Series championship in 1986 and the Yankees in 1996, 1998, and 1999.
Attendees at the event were treated to an interview with Strawberry, along with a performance by Grammy-winning Christian music artist Steven Curtis Chapman.
