1984: Dwight Gooden, Game 17

July 7, 1984: Reds @ Mets, Shea Stadium

Final from Shea Stadium:

Complete game shutout against the Mets, by Mario Soto.

Gooden’s Record: 11-2 (actual record: 8-5)

At the All-Star Break, Dwight Gooden has good enough stats to start for the National League, but I won’t replay that game.

Next opponent: Gooden vs. Barker @ Fulton County Stadium

Stay tuned!

I played a round of golf last night!

The venue:

The players:

Calvin Peete

Mike Souchak

Jay Herbert

Nick Price

The results:

It was close at the halfway point, but then Price birdied on 4 of the last 6 holes and ran away with the win.

And like some of my other table top games (sports and war), I learned something that I didn’t know, this time it was about the man named Calvin Peete, the most successful African-American golfer prior to Tiger Woods.
