Eight-time Major League Baseball All-Star Darryl Strawberry and Super Bowl Winner, Washington Redskin of the Year Tim Johnson … ((LIVE)) Monday, 1pm EST with host Lisa Kratz Thomas on This is Your Life ~ Courage to Change.
Professional athletes are idolized in our American culture, yet their lives are often punctuated with colossal struggles.
- Did you know, almost 80% of National Football League players flirt with bankruptcy two years after retiring (per Sports Illustrated)?
- NBA and MLB players squander millions of dollars on bad decisions, lavish spending, drug addiction and poor financial planning.
You are invited to join a personal and transparent conversation on Monday with Tim Johnson, Darryl Strawberry and Lisa Kratz Thomas (from Crack House to State House).
Meet eight-time MLB All-Star, Four World Series, Rookie of the Year and Cancer Survivor Darryl Strawberry. He says, “The bat is retired, the spikes are in the box, but the true purpose for my life is just beginning.”
Penn State National Champion Tim Johnson played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, won Super Bowl XXVI with the Washington Redskins and was elected 1993 Redskin of the year. Co-founder of The Good Samaritan Foundation with Art Monk, Charles Mann and Earnest Byer, Tim’s motto is “I got way more than I deserved.”
