One of baseball's great highs

This story of a completely stoned pitcher in a baseball game is completely unrelated to Detroit. Well, maybe not, considering that Mark Fidrych's antics on the mound often appeared drug-addled and weird. But this No Mas production about Dock Ellis' no-hitter, pitched under the influence of various drugs, including LSD, is a winner. If you haven't seen it, block off a couple minutes today to watch it. It all happened 44 years ago yesterday.
