Happy birthday, Dock Ellis

Happy birthday to Dock Ellis, who passed away in December, and who would have been 64 today.

Ellis is, of course, the former Ranger pitcher who spent the bulk of his career with the Pirates and who was a Ranger for exactly two years -- from June 15, 1977, to June 15, 1979.

Ellis is most famous for having pitched a no-hitter while tripping on LSD.  He also was teammates on the Rangers with Doc Medich, thus giving those Rangers teams, I believe, the record for the most players whose first name is pronounced "Dock" in major league history.
