Rewind: 02.05.1990


Timeline: February 5, 1990

Darryl Strawberry committed himself to the Smithers Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center. Close friends and business associates denied Strawberry had a substance problem.

“I guess everyone has his own tolerance level, but I wouldn’t dare call Darryl an alcoholic. Obviously, they think he has a problem. I’ve never really seen Darryl drink excessively. I’ve never seen him drunk. . . . Maybe he just wants to cut out drinking, period.”

It marked the beginning of his long, hard personal struggle including substance abuse, solicitation, child support, sex addiction, cancer, depression, etc.

Mets Rewind
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
