One-time Major League Baseball star Darryl Strawberry is stepping to the plate for President Trump’s reelection.
Strawberry – who gained fame in the 1980s as the slugger who helped the New York Mets win a World Series – is one of the three guests taking part Thursday night in a Trump campaign live webcast titled "Faith in America: Black Voices for Trump" that’s being hosted by senior adviser Katrina Pierson.
The baseball legend – who later in his career played for the crosstown rival New York Yankees as they won three championships in the mid to late 1990s – has long been a Trump fan and a friend.
“President Trump, he's a great man to me. He was always gracious to me. I really love him, his family. I was on his show. He's always been kind to me," Strawberry said in a September 2017 interview on Fox Business.
