Strawberry Finds His Purpose

At Lo Hud they write about Darryl Strawberry and his Foundation for Autism:

Former baseball star Darryl Strawberry says his celebrity, his alcohol and drug addictions, the 11 months he spent in prison and even his bout with cancer and kidney disease were all for a purpose that has brought him to a turning point in his life.

The 45-year-old Strawberry has formed a foundation to get help to families dealing with autism.

He says, "You have to have a purpose for life. For me, it wasn't baseball. God gave me a platform to get a name and be successful and use that for this purpose."
