UMH Properties, Inc. (NYSE:UMH) announces it will host three-time champion World Series pitcher Dwight “Doc” Gooden on June 18, 2016 at the manufactured home community owner’s Kinnebrook Estates in Monticello, New York. Gooden will sign fans’ sports memorabilia or a free photo of the storied pitcher that attendees will receive after touring a UMH model home, according to marcellus.
Although his greatest impact was with the New York Mets and the New York Yankees during his 16-year career from 1984 to 2000, Gooden also pitched for the Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the Houston Astros.
He played for the Mets during the team’s World Series victory in 1986, and he pitched the first no-hitter of his career with the Yankees in 1996. The youngest player to appear in an All Star game, Gooden won the prestigious Cy Young Award after only four seasons in the majors, and maintained a lifetime batting average of 318, unusual for a pitcher.
