When Dwight "Doc" Gooden broke into the majors with the New York Mets he had Cooperstown written all over him. In his first five seasons in the Bigs, he went 91-35 with a Cy Young award and World Series championship. By the time his career was over, he was known as much for his troubles with the law as his talents on the mound.

Although he pitched in only one World Series, Gooden was on three championship teams: the 1986 Mets, and the 1996 and 2000 New York Yankees.

Gooden had trouble with drug abuse and has been in and out of rehab over the years. He has also been arrested for assaulting a police officer, drinking and driving, driving with a suspended license, domestic violence and parole violations.
