  • YOU WANTED TO BE A PROFESSIONAL
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:01.150
  • - DARRYL: I THINK WHEN I WAS
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:04.100
  • YOUNG, WHEN I WAS AROUND 13
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:05.070
  • YEARS OLD, 13, 14 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:06.140
  • - ERIC: YOU KNEW THAT,
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:07.020
  • THAT EARLY?
  • 00:02:07.020 --> 00:02:07.150
  • - DARRYL: I KNEW IN THE BACK OF
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:08.120
  • MY MIND BECAUSE I CAME FROM A
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:11.000
  • BROKEN SITUATION, DYSFUNCTIONAL
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:12.190
  • MY DAD WAS A RAGING ALCOHOLIC,
  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:16.130
  • AND HE USED TO BEAT THE CRAP OUT
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:17.080
  • OF ME AND SAID I'D NEVER AMOUNT
  • 00:02:17.080 --> 00:02:18.110
  • TO NOTHIN', SO I KIND OF
  • 00:02:18.110 --> 00:02:19.030
  • BELIEVED IT, SO MY PAIN LED ME
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:21.010
  • TO MY GREATNESS, BUT MY
  • 00:02:21.010 --> 00:02:23.130
  • GREATNESS WOULD EVENTUALLY LEAD
  • 00:02:23.130 --> 00:02:24.080
  • ME TO MY DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:25.190
  • BECAUSE I NEVER GOT WELL
  • 00:02:25.190 --> 00:02:27.010
  • ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:29.000
  • SO WHEN I WAS 14 YEARS OLD, I
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:29.210
  • STARTED WATCHING BASEBALL.
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:31.220
  • I STARTED WATCHING THE DODGERS
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:32.280
  • AND THE CINCINNATI REDS, AND
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:34.020
  • THEN I SAW NUMBER 14 THAT PLAYED
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:37.050
  • FOR THE CINCINNATI REDS, AND HIS
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:38.180
  • NAME WAS PETE ROSE, AND I
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:39.160
  • STARTED REALLY IDOLIZIN' WHO HE
  • 00:02:39.160 --> 00:02:41.200
  • WAS BECAUSE HE WASN'T THIS
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:43.160
  • OUTSTANDING BASEBALL PLAYER,
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.030
  • BUT HIS EFFORT AND
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:48.270
  • HIS HUSTLE--
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:49.130
  • - ERIC: AND THERE'S NO
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:50.010
  • QUESTION, THE "BIG RED MACHINE,"
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:50.270
  • PETE ROSE WAS SUPERHUMAN,
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:52.230
  • REALLY.
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:54.170
  • - DARRYL: YEAH, BECAUSE, YOU
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:55.160
  • KNOW, HIS UNIFORM WAS ALWAYS
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.240
  • DIRTY, AND I JUST THOUGHT TO
  • 00:02:56.240 --> 00:02:57.190
  • MYSELF, "THAT'S WHAT A BASEBALL
  • 00:02:57.190 --> 00:02:59.130
  • PLAYER IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE:
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:00.250
  • HE'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE A
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:01.130
  • DIRTY UNIFORM."
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:02.070
  • AND YOU SEE HIM DIVE INTO
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:03.290
  • BASES AND HEADFIRST, AND I
  • 00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:05.040
  • JUST THOUGHT HE WAS PHENOMENAL.
  • 00:03:05.040 --> 00:03:07.050
  • I'D EVENTUALLY GO ON TO BE A
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:08.170
  • HOME-RUN HITTER, BUT I LEARNED
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:09.080
  • TO STEAL BASES.
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.030
  • I LEARNED TO SCORE RUNS.
  • 00:03:10.030 --> 00:03:11.080
  • YOU KNOW, I LEARNED TO DO IT ALL
  • 00:03:11.080 --> 00:03:12.250
  • BECAUSE OF WATCHIN' PETE ROSE,
  • 00:03:12.250 --> 00:03:15.040
  • THE WAY HE PLAYED.
  • 00:03:15.040 --> 00:03:15.290

  • IN 1991 AFTER I BECAME A FREE
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:55.050
  • AGENT, AND YOU WOULD THINK-- I
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:08:55.290
  • MEAN, I SIGNED A $20 MILLION
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:56.240
  • CONTRACT, BUT I WAS MISERABLE
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:08:57.170
  • WHEN I SIGNED THE CONTRACT
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:08:58.060
  • AS A FREE AGENT.
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:08:58.240
  • - ERIC: WHY?
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:08:59.070
  • - DARRYL: WELL, 'CAUSE MY

  • CRUSADE, A MORRIS CERULLO
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:13.090
  • CRUSADE, AND THAT'S THE FIRST
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:16.030
  • TIME IN 1991 THAT I HEARD ABOUT

  • ALL HE TALKED ABOUT WAS JESUS,
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:21.130
  • AND I CRIED EVERY NIGHT.
  • 00:09:21.130 --> 00:09:22.250
  • I SAT UP THERE, AND I HAD JUST
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:25.010
  • SIGNED A $20 MILLION CONTRACT.
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:26.270
  • EVERYBODY WAS PROBABLY
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:27.160
  • WONDERIN', "WHAT IS

  • WRONG WITH HIM?
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:29.160
  • HE SHOULD BE SO HAPPY," BUT I
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:30.290
  • WAS WEEPIN' EVERY NIGHT, AND I
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:32.130
