In party of the greatest athletic accomplishment by a guy on a psychedelic journey, No Mas as well as artist James Blagden happily present the animated story of Dock Ellis' famous LSD no-hitter. In the previous couple of years we have actually heard all way too much about efficiency enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough concerning efficiency preventing medicines. If our analysis of the records of professional athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, as well as Barry Bonds has to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that Dock Ellis record deserves a gigantic exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever included the Large Leagues, we could only think the number of were assisted by steroids, but we can say without doubt that only one was ever thrown on acid.
Unfortunately, the great Dock Ellis passed away last December at 63. A year before, radio manufacturers Donnell Alexander as well as Neille Ilel, had actually taped an interview with Ellis in which the previous Pirate right hander provided a moment by minute account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and also Ilels initial 4 min piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we came across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to develop a brief animated movie around the original audio.
