This animated short about Dock Ellis’ no-hitter while he was on LSD definitely has its elements of humor. But creator James Blagden from No Mas, a NY-based repository of sport and cultural art, did his homework, too. Doc Ellis and The LSD No-No was fueled by research done by Blagden.
He scoured interviews done with Dock Ellis a year before he passed away last year. In those interviews, Ellis pretty much a moment-by-moment account of his infamous no-hitter. Apparently, Blagden used much of this info in this animated short.
Oh, Dave Cash is quite the funny in the video, in my opinion.
Dock Ellis, drugs, history, no-hitter, pirates, pitching
