Mets to celebrate Doc with bobblehead giveaway Sunday
NEW YORK -- Dwight Gooden will be celebrated before Sunday's game against the Phillies, as New York will be giving away Gooden bobbleheads courtesy of Gold's Horseradish to the first 25,000 fans who arrive at Citi Field.
Gooden, who went 157-85 for the Mets from 1984 through 1994, will also be signing copies of his book "Doc: A Memoir" outside the Mets Team Store in the Jackie Robinson Rotunda from noon until 1 p.m. ET.
Gooden represented the Mets at several events during All-Star week, including a field renovation in the Rockaways and a little league game for special needs children at Citi Field.
