Marcus Stroman Father Earl Stroman And Mother Adlin Auffant
Marcus Stroman parents Earl Stroman and Adlin Auffant separated when he was in fifth grade.
But unlike many, Marcus was lucky that his parents kept their differences aside when it came to raising him and his siblings. The oldest of the three, Marcus Stroman, was born and raised in Long Island and grew up as a Yankees fan.
You might not believe it, but when it came to basketball, football, and baseball, the latter was the least favorite of the pitcher. But the love for the bat and ball game began once he realized basketball might not be the best fit for him because of his small frame.
Throughout the entire ordeal of becoming a professional athlete, Marcus always had the support of his dad and mom. In many of his interviews, Earl Stroman has refused to take any credit but has always said it was his son and the hard work that put him in the place he deserved.
Earl Stroman Is A Detective In Suffolk
Marcus Stroman's father Earl Stroman is a graduate of Patchogue-Medford High School.
Earl Stroman wanted his son to become a football player. Many baseball fans are familiar with the pitcher's dad and it is because of his physical appearance. Eric can certainly pass off as being a wrestler looking at the size of his triceps.
A tweet from 2017 went viral as a Twitter user wrote that Eric could probably rip a person's right off if he wanted to do.
A man who protects the law, we certainly wouldn't expect Eric to do so, without any justifiable reason. Earl Stroman has worked as a detective for more than 35 years in Suffolk. Previously, the father-of-three has talked about the injustices faced by people of color at the hands of police officers in an interview with Newsday in 2021.
Growing up with his dad, Marcus faced a hard time. His dad would make him run up the hill and make him push weighted sleds when he was six. Earl would organize sparring contests between him and Sabria in their living room.
But it was only later that Marcus realized everything his father did was for his benefit. In 2015 when Marcus suffered an injury that looked like it ended his season, Earl and Adlin worked together to nurse their son's injury.
After Marcus made a successful recovery, and Blue Jays headed to the off-season, Earl Stroman gave an emotional interview to CBC News as he talked about how hard his son had worked to be back on the diamond.
Earl is available on Instagram with the username @earlstroman, where the proud father shares a post of his two high-achieving sons in baseball. He also makes sure to post tributes to his daughter Sabria as well.
Earl also makes sure to post photos with his only grandson and is seen on his grandfather's duties whenever he travels to the stadiums. In a post shared on March 20, 2022, Earl is seen with his grandson on his arm as he captioned the post, "Father watching son and son watching father."
Marcus Stroman Mother Adlin Auffant Comes From Puerto Rican Heritage
Marcus Stroman mother Adlin Auffant was hands-on when raising her son.
She focused equally on his academics as much as she did on baseball. Marcus's mum and dad wanted the best education for their son so they made him choose Duke University.
In 2017, as Marcus faced the dilemma of choosing Team USA or Team Puerto Rico in the WBC, Marcus chose to side with Team USA, the land of his father. He was eligible to play for Puerto Rico because of his mother's connection.
And you could say it was the right decision as Team USA lifted the trophy and Stroman was named the MVP of the tournament. But this year, Marcus decided to honor his mother's roots.
For 2023 WBC, Stroman decided to play for Puerto Rico and represent his mother's roots. And though he couldn't lift the title for the second time, Marcus Stroman wore the blue and white colors with great pride.
