WOOSTER — During his baseball career, 335 times when Darryl Strawberry took a swing, he hit the ball out of the park. Now, the former New York Mets and Yankees standout is taking a swing at combating the opiate epidemic.
Darryl Strawberry was in Wooster Monday with his wife, Tracy, to record a couple of television shows in the studio at Faith Harvest Fellowship on South Street. Pastor Jerry O’Brien, who was a fan of Strawberry, decided he would call him up and see if he would be interested in addressing the addiction issue in Ohio. O’Brien sits on the Wayne County Opiate Task Force and has worked with Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on the issue.
