This is the story of Dock Ellis, the pitcher who threw a no-hitter while tripping on acid—known by fans and nonfans alike—has become emblematic of professional baseball’s excess in the 1970s.

However he had a career and a life that transcended one use of LSD. Gladly at the center of controversary throughout his career, Ellis was dubbed "the Muhammad Ali of baseball" and continually spoke out as a champion in the new age of civil rights in American professional sports. He also did this while battling alcoholism and drug addiction.

This portrait of one of the most overlooked cultural icons the sports world has ever known sheds light onto his professional triumphs while also giving an intimate view into his personal demons. The overall experience is a deep, rewarding examination of a life that should known for much more that one infamous no-hitter.
