Scouts who saw young Darryl Strawberry were convinced they were witnessing the birth of a future legend. Although Strawberry would ultimately play in three World Series (1986, 1996 and 1999), he fell far short of his potential after fighting off problems with drugs and money.

Over the years, Strawberry has been charged with drug possession, soliciting sex, disappearing from his house arrest, violating probation, failure to pay child support, and failure to pay income tax.
