Well yesterday a dream of mines came true…. I got the chance to meet Darryl Strawberry and shake his hand. Back in the 80’s living in Florida there was one team I rooted for and that was the New
York Mets….. Darryl and Dwight were two of my favorite players at the time with Will Clark being one number. I remember trying to bat like Strawberry in the batters box and always making a fool outta myself. To me he was a guy I looked up too and wanted to be like. I didn’t know anything about the guy out of the uniform, what he did or how he lived his life. All I cared about was how many home runs he hit or if he stole a base…… I know now that he not the prefect person I looked up to as a kid, but guess what I’m not perfect either. So in the end it was an honor to finally meet him and say thank you for all the great childhood memory’s he gave me.
Next weekend not only is there a card show happening at the local mall but Mr. Darryl Strawberry will be there signing!!! I’m really hyped about this one cause back in the days i was a big Strawberry fan. I loved the way he would swing a bat and all the crazy things he did. So just like i did with Doc Gooden, i got on Ebay and looked for the right piece to get autographed…. And i found it!! Yup the same throw back jersey i picked up for Dr.K i got for Strawberry. The 1986 throwback year, which has a 25 year anniversary patch on it… I can’t wait to meet him and get it signed. I’ll post about it when it happens, Thanks for reading…Wicked out!!!
