Chat with Darryl Strawberry

Welcome to The Show! On Friday, we bring in one of the biggest sluggers in New York Mets history when four-time World Series champion Darryl Strawberry stops by SportsNation to chat.

After winning the 1983 Rookie of the Year, Strawberry went to eight straight All-Star games (seven with the Mets and one with the Dodgers). As one of the most feared home run hitters of the 1980s, Strawberry hit 25 or more home runs in nine straight seasons to start his career. He led the National League in home runs in 1988 with 39 and his 252 career homers as a Met is still a franchise record.

However, as Strawberry excelled on the field, sometimes his achievements were often overshadowed by his struggles off the field. He faced many personal challenges, including drug use, tax evasion, solicitation, and allegations of domestic violence. In his new book "STRAW: Finding My Way," Strawberry talks about overcoming those obstacles.

Send in your questions now and then join Strawberry at 12:50 p.m. ET Friday!
