Baseball legend Dwight Gooden, with a net worth of $2.5 million, has plenty to be proud of over his long career in baseball. In addition to his net worth, he had a reputation as one of the best pitchers in baseball during his career peak in the middle and late 1980s. Gooden's debut in the major leagues came in the year 1984, when he was picked up by the New York Mets when he was just 19 years old. He quickly developed a reputation as an intimidating pitcher, with a 98 mile per hour fastball, and an arching curveball. His skills on the mound earned him several nicknames, not the least of which is "Dr. K," "K" being the baseball scoreboard symbol for a strike out. Just a year after his debut, in 1985, Gooden made one of the most impressive statistical achievements in baseball, racking up 24 wins, 268 strikeouts, and a 1.53 ERA, the second lowest record in the "live ball" era of the sport. Gooden was a New York icon during this period of his career, with speculation about his chances of being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame taking place despite his extremely young age.
Dwight Eugene Gooden (born November 16, 1964), nicknamed "Doc Gooden" or "Dr. K", is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He was one of the most dominant and feared pitchers in the National League in the middle and late 1980s.
A native of Tampa, Florida, Dwight Gooden was drafted in the first round in 1982, the fifth player taken overall. He spent one season in the minors, in which he led the Class-A Carolina League in wins, strikeouts and ERA while playing for the Lynchburg Mets. Gooden had 300 strikeouts in 191 innings, a performance which convinced Triple-A Tidewater Tides manager, future Mets skipper Davey Johnson, that he was capable of making the unusual leap to the major league.
Gooden made his major-league debut on April 7, 1984 with the New York Mets at the age of 19. He quickly developed a reputation with his 98 MPH fastball and sweeping curveball, which was given the superlative nickname of "Lord Charles," in contrast with "Uncle Charlie," a common nickname for a curveball. He was dubbed "Dr. K," (by analogy with basketball's "Dr. J", Julius Erving, and also in reference to the letter "K" being the standard abbreviation for strikeout), which soon became shortened to "Doc". Gooden soon attracted a rooting section at Shea Stadium that called itself "The K Korner," and would hang up cards with a red "K" after each of his strikeouts.
When he took the mound in the fifth inning on July 10, 1984, Gooden became the youngest player to appear in an All-Star Game. He complemented this distinction by striking out the side, AL batters: Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon, and Alvin Davis. Setting up Gooden, NL Pitcher Fernando Valenzuela had already struck out the side in the fourth, putting down future Hall of Famers Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, and George Brett. The two pitchers' combined performance broke an All-Star game record, coincidentally on its celebrated 50th Anniversary-Carl Hubbell's five consecutive strikeouts in 1934.
That season, Gooden won 17 g
