Strawberry visits Tuckahoe Little League


The Tuckahoe Sports' Titans baseball program hosted its inaugural lead-off banquet at the Hilton Short Pump Jan. 17, featuring former Major League Baseball superstar Darryl Strawberry as keynote speaker. The event focused on the organization's leadership group and community service projects.

Strawberry, who was an eight-time MLB all-star and four-time World Series champion, gave the keynote address. He urged attendees to be positive mentors, and to seek the advice of positive mentors, and to seek out their purpose in life while helping others along the way. He later signed autographs for all those in attendance.
