Trippin’ Batters?

September 12, 2010 — Leave a comment

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.

Related Awesome: An animated short of this incident, ‘the greatest achievement in sports history,’ will be part of the Milwaukee Film Festival.  At midnight on October 2, the Oriental Theater will be showing The Best Damn F*#@ing Midnight Program Ever. Sh*t, featuring Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No.
