This is more of a link than a post, because there’s not a ton I can really add to this without appearing to endorse the content. But let me say this much:
- Doc Ellis’ LSD-aided no-hitter of June 12, 1970 is one of baseball’s weirdest feats;
- The linked story that is sort of about it is from A.J. Daulerio at Deadspin, so you’re right to think it may be slightly gonzo; and
- I really, really hate it when a ricotta pizza tries to attack me too.
Anyway, it’s a good story about video games, pizza, history and lysergic acid diethylamide that, under no circumstances whatsoever should you try to replicate at home. And not just because there is no need for any drug in this world apart from some top-end liquor taken in moderation, though that should be reason alone.
