Say "No No" to LSD

In the history of Major League Baseball, there have been 263 no-hitters pitched. We can only speculate about how many of those may have been aided by performance-enhancing drugs like steroids. But Pittsburgh Pirates hurler Doc Ellis did it in 1970 with a different type of performance enhancer -- L-S-D. On a June day in San Diego, Ellis took the mound while on an acid trip and threw a no-no. His game-day account of the trip is a great story and has been turned into an entertaining animated short film.
Enjoy. J.J.
