Darryl Strawberry will be featured on HBO’s Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel to discuss his fall from grace and remarkable turnaround of his life and his work with Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center and Strawberry Ministries.

There might not be a more notable fall from grace in baseball than Darryl Strawberry’s decline from stardom to drug addiction and financial ruin. Now 52, he’s still one of the most beloved New York baseball players ever, but when his b days on the diamond were behind him, his life took a turn for the worse. The four-time World Series champion battled drug addiction, served time in jail due to multiple arrs, lost all his career earnings and was diagnosed with colon cancer. Between doctors’ dire predictions and his deep depression, he was all but given up for dead.

To the surprise of many, Strawberry has made a remarkable turnaround. Out of the spotlight, he’s been sober for nearly a decade and his cancer is in remission. Leaving his baseball days in the past, the eight-time All Star is a happily married, ordained minister and the founder of a recovery center for sufferers of substance abuse. REAL SPORTS correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to Strawberry’s new home in St. Louis to discuss everything from the dark times to his extraordinary transformation.
