Link: ‘Everything is Baseball’

According to a published story in today’s New York Post, former Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden is feeling the effects of life without baseball as a result of the coronavirus.

“My living is baseball camps, clinics, appearances at the ballpark. Everything is baseball,” Gooden said. “Everything’s on hold. I’ve got seven kids, six grandkids and two ex-wives. They don’t want to hear that. They just want to know where their check is.”

Gooden, to be clear, laughed heartily as he said this.

“There’s no self-pity,” he declared, a sentiment echoed by everyone interviewed on this topic. Yet the ex-players’ wide-open calendars illustrate just how deep this pandemic drills into so many different walks of life.

Mets Rewind
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
