Today, March 11th, would’ve marked Dock Ellis’s 68th birthday. Though he’s most famous the 1970 “LSD no-no,” few know about his post-baseball career working as an activist and counselor at drug treatment facilities and prisons. A documentary on his life is currently in production. You can see a trailer and read about it here and here.
