Happy birthday to baseball great Darryl Strawberry. I remember it being such a thrill to get the above issue of Sports Illustrated autographed by Darryl and Don Mattingly in 1987. That was such a fun time. His career in baseball was plagued by drug addiction, but I believe he is clean now. Happy birthday Darryl! Also born on this day: writers Edward Albee and Jack Kerouac.
