Darryl Strawberry’s Granddaughter Returns
Darryl Strawberry is a former Major League Baseball star who was voted Rookie of the Year in 1983 and was at the top of his game in the 80s and 90s. He won a World Series with the New York Mets and went on to win three more World Series with the New York Yankees. He also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants.
However, in the midst of his success, Darryl got caught up in drug abuse, a house arrest, and rehab. He battled cancer, not once, but twice. Now, his purpose and passion is serving God by speaking messages of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel.
Thursday night, Darryl and his daughter Diamond, a former cast member on “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” posted on Instagram asking for help in locating 14-year-old MyLisa. The teen had last been seen in Las Vegas on the morning of Sept. 22, and Darryl asked people to contact the police department in Henderson, Nev., if they had any information regarding her whereabouts. “This is our granddaughter MyLisa who is missing right now!” he said. “Please Please Pray for us as we desperately need your prayers! Thank You!”
While Darryl and Diamond did not share why MyLisa had gone missing or how she had been found, Diamond Strawberry attributed her daughter’s return to the help of her social media followers.
