Strawberry’s achievements are crazy because his career collapsed when he was in his prime. The cocaine addict took more drugs than a racehorse and hardly lived to tell the tale. He abused alcohol and binged on drugs with dramatic consequences. The World Series winner solicited undercover policewomen and created trouble for himself.
Somehow he won three rings with the Mets and the Yankees while maintaining a high output. But the eight-time All-Star received suspensions and infuriated his teammates before colon cancer cut his career short. Strawberry is in the Mets Hall of Fame but his antics mean he won’t make it into Cooperstown (via WAPT).
