Doc Gooden
Gooden threw a no-hitter on May 14, 1996, as a member of the New York Yankees.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Tuesday, former New York Mets pitching ace Doc Gooden stops by to chat about the baseball season, as well as his new book "Doc: A Memoir" that hit stores earlier this month.

Gooden, @DocGooden16, stormed into baseball accumulating 91 wins in his first five seasons. He followed up his 1984 Rookie of the Year campaign with the 1985 Cy Young Award, when he dominated going 24-4 with a 1.53 ERA and 268 strikeouts. He won his first of three World Series rings in 1986, the season when he became the youngest all-star starting pitcher (21 years, 7 months, 30 days).

"Doc," however, tells the story of how Gooden's promising career got derailed by drug and alcohol addiction. He shares his thoughts, with fresh and sober eyes, on his successes and failures, on and off the field. He goes beyond baseball, to his childhood with an alcoholic, womanizing father to overcoming his own demons on the show "Celebrity Rehab."

Send your questions now and join Gooden Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET!
