Another Lucky Find at the Local Public Library

Yesterday, I found Darryl Strawberry's new autobiography at the local public library. It is such a shame that personal demons ruined a seemingly sure place in the Baseball Hall of Fame. I had a little time yesterday to start on this book which greatly differs from most sports biographies. Usually the story is about the playing career with little said about the personal life. The opposite is true about this book. I found a quote in the introductory chapter that really struck me:

"Sooner or later, you have to pay for everything you get and everything you do. Eventually you will have to face the consequences of all your actions and decisions."

Think about it.
