“Did we blow it yesterday or what?” says Admin.
“Missing the 42nd anniversary of Dock Ellis’ no hitter?” Spence says. “A no hitter he threw for the Pirates against the Padres, June 12, 1970. Lots of no hitters in baseball history – “
“As opposed to perfect games – “
” – but only one like his. Dock didn’t realize he was pitching that day and so indulged in some LSD before the game. His recall of events was unusual. ‘The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn’t. Sometimes, I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder.'”
“Rest in peace, Dock.”
