I’ve heard the term ‘trippin’ balls’ a few times in my day in regards to an intense experience on LSD but I’ve never heard- ‘trippin’ batters.’ According to this, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis threw a no hitter in 1984 in the midst of an acid trip. If the Pirates were smart(?) they would start dosing their Gatorade coolers and maybe, just maybe, they’d win some ball games.
