In 1970, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres under the influence of a very different drug... Ellis was tripping balls when his lady tells him to get to go to work. He sure did - and went on to pitch a no hitter! (An 8-walk no hitter, but a no hitter none the less!) Ellis, who passed away last year from liver illness, provided the audio for this piece. This is Viral Video.
