By Bobby T on July 28, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Incredibly interesting story about one of baseballs most famous rookie pitchers. Little did we know that he'd become the troubled athlete that he became. Such promise with Dwight and this book will pretty much tell you everything you want to know about his rookie season. If you can even find the book....

More About the Author

Dwight Eugene Gooden, nicknamed "Doc," at nineteen became the youngest starting pitcher in MLB history until that point. Starting in 1984, Gooden shaped the destiny of the Mets, his 98 mph rising fastball carrying him to Rookie of the Year and Cy Young accolades and guiding the Mets to victory in the 1986 World Series.
