Synopsis

During his 12 years in the major leagues, legendary Dock Ellis wore curlers on the field, dressed flamboyantly and on June 12, 1970, threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates while high on LSD. Often at the forefront of controversy, he has been called the "Muhammad Ali of Baseball." He was an outspoken leader of a new wave of civil rights in sports, and for this, the press labeled him a militant. After Dock retired from baseball, he was as outspoken about his addictions to alcohol and amphetamines (aka "greenies") as he had been about racial prejudice during his career and spent his last decades as a counselor helping other addicts, until his death from liver disease in 2008.
