TODD DULANEY IS ON A MISSION TO CONNECT SPORTS AND FAITH.
“GOD BROUGHT ME FROM SWINGING THE BAT, HITTING HOMERUNS AND WINNING GAMES AND FOUND ME IN THE PIT OF LIFE!! THEN HE PUT ME INTO HIS PULPIT WINNING SOULS!”- DARRYL STRAWBERRY
Dulaney recently teamed up with one of his childhood hero’s, retired MLB player Darryl Strawberry to do just that. During a night of worship at Calvary Church of Naperville, the former Yankees player shared his journey of faith.
“I grew up as a child watching Darryl Strawberry and dreaming to be in his shoes one day!! So to have the opportunity to win souls alongside him was never even on my radar,” Dulaney shared on Instagram.
Strawberry, who is now a Pastor, struggled with drug abuse, battled colon cancer, two failed marriages, child support issues, and served 11 months in jail.
“When I took the uniform off, I was in the midst of a complete downward spiral of addiction,” Strawberry shared with Yankees magazine back in 2016.. “I’ll never forget the number I wore in prison, T17169. When I was in jail, I refused chemotherapy because I would have much rather been dead. But God was doing for me what I couldn’t do for myself. He wasn’t going to let me go.
