Keynote Speaker and Guest of Honor

We are absolutely thrilled to announce this year’s keynote speaker is the one and only Darryl Strawberry! He is one of the most esteemed players in all of MLB history. Over the course of 17 years Darryl made eight consecutive All-Star game appearances and won four World Series championships! With all of his success, we’ll hear about what obstacles he had to overcome growing up in a broken home and what truly brought him purpose. We’re in for a treat!
