Darryl Strawberry

I met him at a Minor League game at Dunedin Stadium at Grant Field in Dunedin, Florida on July 4, 1995, when the Tampa Yankees, whom he was on a rehab assignment with, came to play the Dunedin Blue Jays.

Darryl signed the back of the March 1991 issue of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly.


  1. I remember what a thrill it was the first time I met Darryl. I had a dream like a month before meeting him that he was on a rehab assignment and playing at Dunedin Stadium. Then it actually happened! I remember sitting in the dugout chatting with him during BP. I also remember how phony the fans were... Everytime he came to bat, he was booed. Then after the game just outside the clubhouse, the same fans were cheering him and wishing him well on his comeback, but only in hopes of getting his autograph. Meeting Darryl Strawberry is one my personal highlights. He's one of the nicest people I've ever met.
