The story of Doc Ellis and the LSD no hitter.


Hey, remember Doc Ellis? Of course you don’t, he wasn’t a particularly memorable pitcher although he does have a place in baseball history. Ellis pitched a no hitter for the Pirates on a day he didn’t even think he was supposed to play. Why? Because he took some LSD.

Ellis died last December at the age of 63 and gave a great account of the events leading up to the game. Well done video and absolutely hilarious.

Luckily, he didn’t end up in an RV bathroom for three days. (Anybody?)
