Happy Anniversary Doc Ellis and the LSD No Hitter

Chances are you don't remember why June 13 is special, and I can promise that you will never find any footage of this memorable day. But as more and more pitchers are tossing no hitters in the MLB, its important for us to remember one of the greatest no hitter performances of all time.

42 years ago today, Doc Ellis tossed a no hitter while pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Perhaps the most impressive part of this is, Doc was "tripping" on LSD while pitching the perfect game.  And you thought David Wells was hardcore for his perfect game with a hangover.

MLB has banned all footage and images from the game, but lucky for us we do have the re-enactment that I am pretty sure is accurate.
