 Dock Phillip Ellis, Jr. was an American professional baseball player. A pitcher, Ellis played in Major League Baseball from 1968 through 1979 for the Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers, and New York Mets 

Dock Ellis continued pushing for change and illuminating places where he saw injustice. He became an outspoken advocate for free agency for ballplayers and never stopped talking about systemic racism. But it was after his baseball career ended in 1980 that he checked himself into rehab. When he finished treatment, he decided that he was meant to help others find recovery. He went to the University of California at Irvine and became a substance abuse counselor.
