Darryl Strawberry talks to 60 Minutes Sunday about his battle with drug addiction and cancer and his latest flight from court-ordered drug rehabilitation. This is the first interview Strawberry has granted since he returned from a four-day drug binge that violated his parole and could cost him a lengthy jail sentence. A few weeks ago, the former slugger appeared to be winning his battle against drugs.
Footage of Strawberry's friend, the former pitching ace and reformed drug addict Dwight Gooden, searching for Strawberry during his disappearance is also featured. The interview footage of Strawberry was obtained from John Parsons, a documentary filmmaker, who has been following Strawberry since last December.
