Have Lunch with Doc Gooden

Looking for a gift for the Mets fan in your life who has everything?

How about buying him/her a lunch with Dwight Gooden?

The Baseball United Foundation has announced a fundraising luncheon to benefit their programs to grow youth baseball programs in regions of the world where baseball is not traditionally played.

The luncheon – which is being called “Lunch with Doc” – will be held on February 21, 2015 at Graziella’s Italian Bistro in White Plains, NY. The event will feature a talk and Q&A session with former Mets and Yankees star Dwight “Doc” Gooden.

Get tickets and more information on the “Lunch with Doc” at www.LunchwithDoc.com. And guess what? Because you are a MetsToday supporter, you get $25 off the price of your ticket! Just enter the promo code “METSTODAY” at checkout. You’re welcome!

Oh, and if you are in a position where you can be an event sponsor, and would like to enjoy an extra-special, private / VIP meeting with Doc, check out the sponsorship opportunities — they are surprisingly affordable. Hurry, though — they’re going to sell out quickly.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
