On Thursday, ESPN released the latest 30 of 30: ‘Doc & Darryl.’ It’s already safe to say that it hit home for New York Mets fans.

No baseball? No problem.

Basically, the baseball stories of Dwight “Doc” Gooden and Darryl Strawberry, mainly from their time with the New York Mets, was on full display Thursday night in ESPN’s newest edition of 30 for 30: Doc & Darryl.

Starting from their rise as baseball superstars with the Mets, winning the 1986 World Series, to their fall with drugs, alcohol and other setbacks that ruined their careers and prevented them from reaching their full potential, was chronicled in-depth and showcased in a brand spanking new fashion.

Along with the Mets, they both played together with the New York Yankees too, despite being a shell of their former selves as players, all while experiencing more trouble.


However, they’ve both rebounded and come out clean.

Strawberry is now an ordained minister at a church in Missouri and Gooden has been working a lot with kids. Both of them are helping lots of others reach their potential and not make the same mistakes they made.

Although they had never fulfilled their entire potential – as the tagline of Baseball Hall of Fame should be attached – it’s great to see them bounce back and be contributing members to society.

This is an ESPN original that both Mets and Yankees fans should take the time out for.
