STRIKE OUT

After less than a year of dating, Berry married then-Atlanta Braves outfielder David Justice (whom she called her "prince on a white horse") on New Year's Day 1993. Three years later the pair (pictured in 1994) began divorce proceedings – including a restraining order filed by Berry, who describes the period as "a painful, painful chapter in my life."
