Did you know that Darryl Strawberry was once ranked the single most powerful hitter in New York Mets history in an article ( New York Mets: Darryl Strawberry and the Top 10 Power Hitters in Team History ) published on April 5, 2011, by Sportswriter Jim Mancari? The Darryl Strawberry excerpt from that article appears below:

From 1983-1991, Darryl Strawberry was a home run-hitting machine.
He hit at least 26 home runs per season during that clip, with his career high in 1987 and 1988 with 39 homers.
Like Howard Johnson , Strawberry was the rare combination of speed and power. He joined Ho-Jo as the first Met to record a 30-30 season in 1987.
His home runs were majestic, which makes his story so sad. Strawberry's drug issues affected his play on the field and diminished his immense talent.
It's always imagined what could have been for Strawberry. Still, he retired as the Mets' all-time leader with 252 home runs.

Darryl Strawberry, Jose Vizcaino , and Ricky Ledee are the only three players in Major League history to have played for the four current or former New York teams; the New York Mets, the New York Yankees, the (Brooklyn) Dodgers, and the (New York) Giants? Of the three, Darryl Strawberry is the only one to have played his entire career with those four teams.

Darryl Strawberry in The Simpsons
Darryl Strawberry / The Simpsons / Homer at the Bat
The first American League player in history with two pinch hit grand slams in the same season was Darryl Strawberry who accomplished the feat in 1998 ( 05-02-1998 & 08-04-1998 ). The first episode of The Simpsons to beat The Cosby Show in ratings during the original airing (February 20, 1992) was "Homer at the Bat", Darryl Strawberry guest starred in that episode playing himself (image above) along with fellow major leaguers Wade Boggs , Jose Canseco , Roger Clemens , Ken Griffey, Jr. , Don Mattingly , Steve Sax , Mike Scioscia , and Ozzie Smith .
