Dock Ellis & the LSD No-hitter

Animation accompanying pitcher Dock Ellis‘ hilarious account of the time he pitched a no-hitter while high as a kite on LSD and bennies. The 1970s were a different time.

Thanks to a reader named L for the tip.

    What is not to love about that video? The 1970’s, baseball, and LSD. Truely, America’s Pastime.

    Baseball is not a big thing here in the UK, so I wouldn’t have understood any of the terms, but the way he related the story was laugh out loud funny and the animation was great.

    I’ve been having a little root around some of your other posts and I like it. I hope to drop in from time to time, between working, living and servicing my own blog of course.

  3. This is why we need the internet in our lives. An abundance of great stories. Without really having to look too hard for them.

    Your blog is funny!

    This is a really cool video. As a Baby Boomer,
    who attended Woodstock and a big baseball
    fan I can really realate to this.

    Though I moved out of the Pittsburgh area
    nearly 10 years earlier, I can still relate
    to the calls of the great Bob Prince aka “the
    Gunner”. I knew right away about that green
    thing he had in his hand which he called
    “the Green Weenie” a prop used to jinx opposing
    players.

    Also the music by Rufus Thomas was way cool.
    Great job. Absolute fucking cultural genius.
