Darryl Strawberry‘s name conjures up dozens of great memories for both Mets and Yankees fans. In fact, Darryl is on a VERY short list of MLB personalities revered by both fan bases.

He also has had some unique experiences with two often-polarizing figures in President Trump and George Steinbrenner.

With his new book Don’t Give Up On Me about to come out, Darryl called into the WDHA Morning Jolt to talk with Jim Monaghan and John Hodorovych about the President and the Boss, his thoughts on the link between sports and politics, and the beauty of a left-handed swing in baseball.

Don’t Give Up On Me: Shedding Light On Addiction With Darryl Strawberry will be published on October 16, 2017.
