New York Mets – Darryl Strawberry is resting comfortably after heart attack, according to the Chicago Tribune

LAKE ST. LOUIS, MO. (AP) — Former New York Mets and Yankees star Darryl Strawberry is recovering from a heart attack and is at SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital.

Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Tuesday that Strawberry contracted the disease on Monday, a day before the eight-time All-Star’s 62nd birthday.

Strawberry posted a photo of herself in the hospital on Instagram and wrote: “I’m so happy and honored to report that all is well.”

“I am so grateful to the medical team and staff at St. Joseph West in Lake St. Louis for responding so quickly and getting me through a stent procedure that brought my heart to full recovery!!!” Strawberries added.

Strawberry, who lives in O’Fallon, Missouri, is resting comfortably, Horwitz said.

After retiring Dwight Gooden’s No. 16 on April 14, the Mets will retire Strawberry’s No. 18 on June 1. The duo led the team to the 1986 World Series title.

“We look forward to Straw’s speedy recovery and welcoming him to his retirement ceremony on June 1,” Mets owner Steven Cohen and his wife, Alex, said in a statement.

Strawberry was a seven-time All-Star during his time with the Mets from 1983-90 and won the NL Rookie of the Year award in 1983.

He hit .259 with 335 homers, 1,000 RBIs and 221 stolen bases in 17 seasons, which included time with the Los Angeles Dodgers (1991-93), San Francisco Giants (1994) and New York Yankees (1995-99). He was a part of three World Series championship teams with the Yankees.

Strawberry’s career was derailed by drug and alcohol problems, as well as treatment for colon cancer, which caused him to miss the 1998 World Series.
