in honor of Opening Day

i give you the greatest baseball story ever

this is the unbelievable (but true) story of one Dock Ellis

a young black pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates who one day


took LSD the day he was supposed to pitch.

he took the mound, and threw the best game of his life


how rare are no-hitters? so rare there were only two thrown all season last year, both in July.

both thrown on acid. jk.
