Motivator:
Darcy believes in focusing on our dreams as a way to achieve our goals. He encourages his audience to never give up, that failure is part of the process, and that extraordinary effort leads to success.  It was his life-long dream that led to his unprecedented rise to the major leagues after playing only 30 games in the minor leagues.
 
Topics:
" Let's Talk Baseball"
Darcy shares his favorite baseball stories from the past - from his unlikey opportunity to play professional baseball to his rise to the major leagues and playing with some of the greatest ballplayesr of all time.  This informal presentation includes a question and answer time followed with a book signing, and can be tailored to any audience.
 
"Pride & Passion" - The African American Baseball Experience. 
Darcy explores the changing roles baseball has played in American culture and shares personal experiences of black teammates and Hall of Famers - Ernie Banks, Ferguson Jenkins, and Billy Williams, includinig the influence Leo Durocher and Pee Wee Reece had on Jackie Robinson -  the first black player in the 20th century to overcome the color barrier and play in the Major Leagues.
 
"Never Give Up on Your Dreams"
Darcy says that people who fulfill their God-given dreams aren't always the most brilliant, not always the most talented, not always the better skilled.  They don't always have the best resources at their disposal.  They're just people who refuse to giveup on their dreams and have learned essential attitudes that have made them successful.
