Lunch with Dwight Gooden

We are still three weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training — in the meantime, to get your baseball “fix,” why not buy tickets to lunch with Dwight Gooden?

Dr. K will be the main attraction at a fundraising luncheon, hosted by the Baseball United Foundation, to benefit programs to grow youth baseball programs in regions of the world where baseball is not traditionally played.

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

As a side note, 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 on the Lunch with Doc website — they are surprisingly affordable.

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.

    Bobby Ojeda apparently out as SNY studio analyst.

    I will miss his criticisms…I was pleasantly surprised by how direct and on point he was with many of his comments.
