This guy must have been a total trip (no pun intended). I vaguely remember him pitching for the mets and Yankees later in his career. First he pitches a no hitter on acid.

Then last night they were talking about how he set out to hit the reds batters in 1974 and told everyone he was going to do it.lol.

He would certainly have been suspended today for that. R.i.P brother.lol

I met Dock one morning at the local grocery store. He was amazed that I recognized him. He was a trip for sure. The local president of the MLB alumni told me he was a real piece of work. Would not do any charity work without getting paid. :roll: :roll: He ended up as a drug rehab counselor.... 8-) 8-)

He was always crying racism I guess. Got into a fight with a security guard at riverfront stadium. Threw a bat at a minor league fan who was heckling him. Tried to fight Danny murtaugh. Wore hair curlers in the bullpen. Fought with a rangers manager for not allowing alcohol on the team planes. Was married 4 times. Sounds like he was quite a character.
