Because I’ve always wanted to watch this game, please sign an online petition which is meant to convince the MLB Network to air the game Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter while he was, “as high as a Georgia Pine,” or LSD.
Ellis threw the no-hitter on June 12, 1970 while he was a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates he beat the San Diego Padres 2-0. He walked eight batters and hit another, but managed to throw the no-no.
Ellis later became a Yankee in 1976, he had a great season going 17-8 with a 3.19 ERA, before he got traded very early in 1977, in just three starts he had a 1-1 record with a 1.83 ERA.
