View Full Version : How to pitch a no-hitter while on acid

I just read an article (http://www.dallasobserver.com/Issues/2005-06-16/news/feature_print.html) on Dock Ellis and thought some of the other baseball fanatics around here might get a charge out of it.

Didn't Jim Bouton do that too?

No no-hitter for Bouton, and no acid. Otherwise, you're fine.
If I had thrown a no-hitter on acid like Ellis, it would have been a long time before I ever pitched again while NOT on acid, I'll tell you that

What an awesome read! Thanks chique.
I'm a life-long Texas Rangers fan. I love the Nolan Ryan / Charlie Hough years.
You gotta love a pitcher who smokes cigarettes between innings.

[B]The SF Seals[/BB] did a great song about Ellis' feat on their album Baseball Trilogy (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000036RY/ref=m_art_li_2/103-5877548-4152616?v=glance&s=music).
Highly recommended for baseball and L.S.D. fans.

Chuck Brodsky (http://www.chuckbrodsky.com/lyrics.html#TBB) also has a song about Dock Ellis, as well as a number of other unusual baseball episodes. He sort of downplays the "acid" part of the story, although once you know the background, it becomes a lot more obvious.
