Former MLB Great Darryl Strawberry To Speak In Sioux Center
Date posted - August 16, 2016
Sioux Center, Iowa — His is a story of hope, change, and redemption. So says former Major League Baseball player, Darryl Strawberry. Strawberry is headed for northwest Iowa with a message of hope.
The four-time World Series champion with the New York Mets and New York Yankees (3) also appeared in eight consecutive MLB All-Star games. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, he 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. However, the fame and fortune of his baseball success also provided the foundation and means for drug and alcohol addiction.
Micheal DeJong tells us the story of bringing Strawberry to Sioux Center.
He says Strawberry’s message of hope will be given at the House of Missions and Equipping or “HOME,” which is located in the same building as Culvers and Hy Vee in Sioux Center, to the rear of Culvers. De Jong tells us about “HOME.”
The message will begin at 5 p.m. this Sunday evening, August 21st. DeJong says tickets are available online, but will not be available at the door. You can get tickets at by going to ignitedarryl.com.
