DWIGHT GOODEN

Road Trip Stop #10: Westbury, NY

Dr. K was one of the most dominating pitchers of the 1980s. At age 19 he was the N.L. Rookie of the Year; at 20 he won the Cy Young Award; and at 21 he was a world champion for the N.Y. Mets. In 1985, his best season, Gooden went 24-4 with a 1.53 ERA and 268 strikeouts. Although drug problems and arm issues derailed his career at times, he reinvented himself for the New York Yankees in the 1990s, pitching a memorable no-hitter in 1996. Sober for the last couple of years after appearing on Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab, Gooden is now active on the speaking circuit, warning youth of the dangers of addiction and drug abuse.
