Darryl Strawberry will be making an appearance on ESPN’s Emmy Award Winning 30 for 30 series, the episode is to be titled “Doc & Darryl,” and premiers Thursday, July 14, at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
MLB players, Darryl Strawberry and Dwight “Doc” Gooden reached the heights of super-stardom only to fall into the depths of addiction. ESPN sits down with these two superstars to chat about substance abuse and their recovery from it.
Darryl and Doc were young men thrust into the limelight at an early age where no one ever told them no. This lifestyle led to more and more drugs until their lives were almost destroyed. Years later both found their own path to addiction recovery. Part of that recovery path includes Darryl’s involvement with co-founding the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Centers which are located in St. Cloud, FL and DeLand, FL.
