A four-time World Series champion, Strawberry founded the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center (DSRC), located in St. Cloud, Fla., in partnership with Oglethorpe Healthcare Inc. Together with his wife Tracy, Strawberry has also started a Christian recovery program at Oglethorpe's behavioral hospital in Longview, Texas.

The spikes are in a box, the bat is retired but the true passion and purpose for my life is just beginning. That passion is being able to make a difference in the lives of others. Today I have hope, a hope I want to instill in others.”
