I just read an article 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
Great link Chique… thanks for posting.
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.
**The SF Seals[/BB] did a great song about Ellis’ feat on their album Baseball Trilogy.
Highly recommended for baseball and L.S.D. fans.
Chuck Brodsky 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.
