Doc Gooden Finds Out He's Responsible For Frank The Tank's Mets Fandom | Frank Walks Episode 18

There is no athlete who meant more to me growing up than Dwight Gooden. My first year of fully following baseball was 1985, when Gooden had one of the greatest seasons in MLB history. Gooden posted a record of 24-4 with a 1.53 ERA and 268 strikeouts to win the pitcher's Triple Crown and Cy Young. Over the next decade, a large mural of Dwight Gooden hung by the Lincoln Tunnel almost as if it was the welcome to New York. I walked with Dwight Gooden a week after he had his #16 retired by the Mets. It was a dream come true.
