"Straw is the story of a guy who had two strikes against him in the middle innings of life and hit one out of the park."
"A riveting and memorable account of one man's pursuit of a meaningful life."
Former New York Met and Yankee slugger Darryl Strawberry has subtitled his autobiography Straw, "Finding My Way"--and his path was never easy. A National League Rookie of the Year, eight-time MLB All Star, and four-time World Series Champion, Strawberry's baseball achievements were often overshadowed by his struggles off the field. In Straw, he tells it all: his boyhood in Crenshaw, Los Angeles; his rise to baseball superstardom; the high life and low life; his brushes with the law; his triumphant battle over cancer; his religious awakening, and his marriage to the love of his life.
