MLB Legend Darryl Strawberry has been announced as the keynote speaker for this year’s 75th annual Booster Banquet that’s happening on November 11th at Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal, Missouri. Strawberry is excited to participate as he is passionate about the theme of the event and enjoys to talk about his previous career as well as his religious beliefs. He is expected to share some of the stories from his baseball days as well as discuss his current published memoir titled “Straw: Finding My Way” which was published in 2009.
The Los Angeles, California native was a star high school baseball athlete that went straight to the pros after graduating. He entered the 1980 MLB Draft and was selected by the New York Mets with whom he stayed with until 1990. From 1991 to 1993, Strawberry got to return to his home turf and play for the Los Angeles Dodgers before doing a brief year with the San Francisco Giants, and eventually going back east to join the New York Yankees in 1995 until his retirement in 1999. The four-time World Series Champion has also started his own non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping children with autism, which he started with his wife in 2006.
Strawberry will be in Missouri this fall to take part in this year’s 75th annual Booster Banquet, and he is expected to draw in lots of fans to the event with his scheduled keynote speech. Tickets to the banquet will start selling on September 1st through the Hannibal-LaGrange University alumni services department.
