My Darryl Strawberry painting.
Darryl Eugene Strawberry (born March 12, 1962) is a former American Major League Baseball outfielder. Strawberry was well known for his play on the field and for his controversial behavior off it. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Strawberry was one of the most feared sluggers in the game, known for his prodigious home runs and his intimidating presence in the batter’s box with his 6-foot-6 frame and his long, looping swing that elicited comparisons to Ted Williams.
During his 17-year career, he helped lead the New York Mets to a World Series championship in 1986 and the New York Yankees to threeWorld Series championships in 1996, 1998 and 1999. A popular player during his career, Strawberry was voted to the All-Star Game eight straight times from 1984–1991.[

In Game 5 of the 1956 World Series, Gil Hodges led off the top of the fifth inning for the Dodgers. On a 2-2 count, Hodges hit a scorching line drive to deep left center field. Mickey took off at top speed running back and to is right toward left center field. In the middle of his gait, just as the ball was about to sail past him, he reached up across his body and speared the ball backhanded for a tremendous running catch, which robbed Hodges of an extra-base hit and preserved Larsen’s perfect game.
