Dock Ellis Says He Pitched 1970 No-Hitter Under The Influence of LSD

Dock Ellis Says He Pitched 1970 No-Hitter Under The Influence of LSD
(story aired on espn)
http://www.sirbacon.org/4membersonly/docellis.htm

Los Angeles, April 8, 1984- Former Pittsburgh Pirates' pitcher Dock Ellis says he was under the influence of LSD when he pitched a 1970 no-hitter against the San Diego Padres.

Ellis, now co-ordinator of an anti drug program in Los Angeles, said he didn't know until six hours before his June 12, 1970 no hitter that he was going to pitch.

"I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego , but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD..... I thought it was an off-day, that's how come I had it in me. I took the LSD at noon. At 1pm, his girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

"That's when it was $9.50 to fly to San Diego. She got me to the airport at 3:30. I got there at 4:30, and the game started at 6:05pm. It was a twi-night doubleheader.

I can only remember bits and pieces of the game. I was psyched. I had a feeling of euphoria.

I was zeroed in on the (catcher's) glove, but I didn't hit the glove too much. I remember hitting a couple of batters and the bases were loaded two or three times.

The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn't. Sometimes I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder. They say I had about three to four fielding chances. I remember diving out of the way of a ball I thought was a line drive. I jumped, but the ball wasn't hit hard and never reached me."

The Pirates won the game, 2-0, although Ellis walked eight batters. It was the highpoint in the baseball career of one of the finer pitchers of his time, and arguably,one of the greatest achievements in the history of sports.

I read some other interview bits where he said at times when he threw the ball it has followed by rainbow comet tails. I also thought I read that he took some greenies to even him out a bit.

I'm not a sports person, So when they say that he walked eight batters, does that mean he struck them out or what?

I wish they'd replay this game on ESPN Classic... I'd be giggling like a school girl through the whole thing.

Didn't Denny McLean throw a perfect game on LSD too?

I don't know what kind of library would have every single Pittsburgh Pirate game on tape. It would have to be that kind of library. The June 12th 1970 game vs. the San Diego Padres means nothing to anyone but stoners.

I can't tell if you're being serious or not.

I'm being serious. They might have it for sale. Or look at ESPN's online store, or ebay.

Ah......I don't need to be spending my money on stuff like that. I'd love to have it or at least see it, though.
