From the NY Times today - Doc Gooden to be named senior vice president for the Neward Bears. Gooden "would be an ambassador and assist in youth camps and with Little League development in Newark" and "will work with Manager Tim Raines ... instructing the players". Gooden and Raines were teammates with Yankees.
It's just good to see Doc back in the area and doing something positive. It was so great seeing Doc return to the Mets last September and a bit during the season.
The current Bears roster features ex-Major Leaguers such as INF D'Angelo Jimenez, INF Rob Mackowiak, ex-Met OF Carl Everett, OF Charlton Jimerson, ex-Yankee RP Ramiro Mendoza, and P Scott Williamson. ex-Major Leaguer Tim Raines is the Manager along with ex-Major Leaguers (Pitching coach) Mike Torrez and (hitting coach) Ron Karkovice.
