Dwight Gooden Biography

Known as Dr. K by baseball fans, Dwight Gooden was born November 16, 1964 in Tampa, Florida. He was one of the most dominant and feared pitchers in the National League in the middle and late 1980s, but his career declined precipitously, primarily due to injuries.

Gooden retired in 2001 after he was cut by the Yankees in spring training, ending his career with a record of 194-112. More than half of those wins came before age 25.

He took a job in the Yankees' front office. Gooden's nephew, Gary Sheffield, was signed to play for the Yankees prior to the 2004 season. Dwight acted as the go-between man during the negotiations.
