Petition Online: Petittion To Get MLB Network To Air the Dock Ellis No-Hitter

We the undersigned humbly, and with all due respect, ask the MLB Network to air the June 12, 1970 game between the San Diego Padres and the Pittsburgh Pirates. On that day the Pirates’ pitcher Dock Phillip Ellis threw what was at the time the 3rd no-hitter in Pirates history and it was a seminal moment in baseball history. The fans would like to relive this moment and want to see it rerun on the MLB Network.

Oh, I love her soooo, my Alice D!

I read the headline, and thought "Well, I know there's at least one person here who's on board for sure."

At the time, it was the 5th, but it was promoted to 4th when Harvey Haddix's no longer counted.

It may have been the seventh; Lefty Leifield and Howie Camnitz also had no-hitters taken away.

Does a broadcast exist?

I'm watching it now, man. IN MY MIND.

This should absolutely happen. Why wouldn't it?

I'd sign this, but I'm almost certain that there's no tape of it.

I would settle for a reenactment. What are those Korean animation guys doing right now?

But think of the children! And how their generation will never get the chance to experience quality acid!

I think it's Taiwanese animators. Plus, AJ Daulerio of Deadspin tried to do it playing MLB2K11 for Xbox while on acid. He generated Dock Ellis, but played with the 2011 versions of the teams.
