NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Dwight Gooden is now an open book.
The former Mets pitcher left little to the imagination in “Doc: A Memoir,” his account of a life and promising career derailed by drug and alcohol abuse. He stopped by the WFAN studios Thursday to give listeners an idea of what to expect as they read about his journey from addiction to incarceration to recovery.
“You’re as sick as your secrets,” Gooden said on the “Boomer & Carton” show. “I had to come clean with everything, and so basically it was just strictly therapy for myself and hopefully (it will) help someone else.”
