Dwight Gooden & His 1986 World Series Championship!!!

Dwight Gooden & His 1986 World Series Championship!!!

Dwight Gooden and the New York Mets are one of the most remembered and talked about World Series championship winning teams of the last 30 years.

Full of talent and personality, this team was very hard not to like.  And the young superstars that built their roster were all integral parts of the Mets bringing home the World Series trophy.

As for Gooden, he did not have that strong of a series against the Red Sox.  Making 2 starts, he threw just 8 innings and recorded losses in both efforts.  In the losses, he collected just 9 strikeouts while allowing 17 hits and 10 runs.

But, the good news(for Gooden) is that the Mets were able to beat the Red Sox in 7 games in 1986.  And Dwight Gooden won a ring in his first and only shot at a World Series title.

  1. Hard not to like? The last book covering them was called The Bad Guys Won (ha ha ha)! It’s probably region dependent, but I remember people HATED those awesome, hard-partying Mets.
