Tag Archives: Michael Strawberry
Michael Strawberry was born and raised in LA and was the oldest of five kids. Michael was drafted to the LA Dodgers and played baseball in his hometown for three years before following his childhood dream of becoming a police officer. As a member of the LAPD, Michael was indispensible. He worked not only in the gang unit but in Narcotics and as a detective as well. Michael’s proudest achievement as a police officer was his contribution to the Police Athletic League. Michael coordinated sporting events for the children throughout the south central LA area.
In July of 2010, upon his retirement from the force, we had the good fortune of welcoming Michael to Queens, where his young brother Darryl, has been a baseball legend.
In August of 2010 Strawberry’s Sports Grill opened for business with Michael Strawberry serving as an ambassador to the community. Strawberry’s Grill has become a true member of the community and no one more so than Michael. He is the smiling, gracious face who knows the sports fans, children and families alike that enter through the doors of Strawberry’s Grill. Recently, he was even honored by Queens for being the ‘King of Queens’!
He is a true friend to the community and inspirational role model to all that meet him. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Michael Strawberry, you can catch him over at Strawberry’s!
We want to give a big shout out to him CONGRATULATIONS MICHAEL!!
