Mets pitching legend Dwight (Doc) Gooden signed autographs for fans on April 6 at the Grand Avenue branch of Ridgewood Savings Bank in Elmhurst.

The 1984 National League Rookie of the Year and 1985 Cy Young Award Winner signed a shirt for Tracy Lisl of Middle Village, left, a Mets fan since age 8.

At right, he signed a ball for Queens resident Kathy Kratzer.

Known as Dr. K for his high strikeout totals early in his career, Gooden was a four-time National League All-Star and was a pitching mainstay for the 1986 World Series Champion Mets. He also pitched briefly for the New York Yankees.
