Dock Ellis was an All-Star pitcher and a world-class partier - an activist in athlete's clothing whose relevance echoes across decades. Donnell Alexander's analysis of an athlete the system could not contain hits with a wallop that's beyond even LSD. Ellis, the Pittsburgh Pirates legend, within his familiar as "the Muhammad Ali of baseball", pitched astride the fault line of free agency, bringing the psychedelic experience to the civil rights movement and old-school baseball to the '70s. Drunkard, addict and a dominant pitcher. The redemption of Dock Ellis is a narrative that speaks to the national pastime from a frank and insightful perspective.
