FAIRFIELD, Conn.-- New York Mets legends Dwight Gooden and Bobby Valentine will participate in an interview-style event at Fairfield's Sacred Heart University in which both will explore their careers in baseball.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Ellis Henican, who wrote Gooden's new book Doc: A Memoir, will host the event.
Valentine is a Stamford native. After a career of managing baseball in the U.S. and Japan, Valentine was named the director of intercollegiate athletics at SHU last February.
Gooden pitched for both the Mets and the Yankees and was the youngest player to win the Cy Young Award. He won three World Series rings in his career and currently works with at-risk children and adults.
The event will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts on the SHU campus.
Tickets for the event are $15 for the general public and $35 for a signed copy of Gooden's new book.
