Video: Beyond Ellis D, The Life and Meaning of Legendary Pirates Starter Dock Ellis


Beyond Ellis D is a penetrating look at the life and meaning of legendary Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis.  It’s a fasicnating multimedia project that reaches past the acid-fueled no-hitter for which he’s so well known.

Writer Donnell Alexander couples a revealing essay on Ellis, which reveals the story behind Dock’s hilariously epic LSD no-no tale, with an animated, three-part movie voiced by Dock Ellis himself.

It’s a three-part short, here is part one.
