Former professional baseball star Darryl Strawberry will be in Nebraska next week for several events hosted by the Omaha Storm Chasers, the top minor-league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.
Strawberry will be in Omaha on Wednesday to talk to area youth about life and the basics of baseball and will also appear at Werner Park for a meet-and-greet during the Storm Chasers game against the Oklahoma City RedHawks.
Strawberry played for the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and
New York Yankees. He was known for his towering homeruns and clutch hitting in the post-season.
He is a two-time cancer survivor and founded The Darryl Strawberry Foundation, which works for people with autism.
