Dock Ellis was an All-Star pitcher and later Comeback Player of the Year. He won 138 games in the majors and often made the league leaderboards in pitching. He won one World Series ring. He was part of Pittsburgh's historic lineup featuring only African-American and Afro-Latino players. He was one of the more controversial figures of his generation. An outspoken African-American pitcher in an era when it was still frowned upon for players to speak up and out against injustices small or large, he may be the only man in history to throw a no-hitter while zonked on the hallucinogenic LSD. After baseball, he helped troubled youth overcome their own issues with drugs and alcohol.
