Dock Ellis’s LSD no-hitter

A couple years ago, I posted about Dock Ellis’s no-hitter, thrown while high on LSD on June 12, 1970 against the Padres.  Last night I found this video from No Mas depicting the story in cartoon form.  Artist James Blagden used the original audio from an interview Ellis recorded with radio producers Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel in 2008 to create this short, animated film.  It’s quite amusing (and full of flashing colors, so be forewarned).  Enjoy!

      1. Precious, I just finished watching it for the first time and all I can so is Shapooooneeeneeee! A rough translation of that would be unexpectedly delicious and moving to tears and so much more. I watched it on Netflix but it is apparently also available on you tube for a nominal fee.
