In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. In...

This is a fantastic short film. I recommend everyone watch it.
As mentioned multiple times in the comments length/intensity of trip depends on dosage, body weight, metablolism, etc... not uncommon for visual effect to last 12 hours and overall 24 hours. He took a second dose the morning of the game.  He was trippng.  His remorse of not remembering and other aspects... his anecdote rings true.
Dock Ellis D. Ellis Ellis, D. LSD
+Derrick kNOw actually it was his nick name for a reason 
I wish No Mas would make a full movie about Dock. This short film leaves you hungry for more and Dock has a lot more legendary stories like how he threw pitches at Pete Rose and Joe Morgan

Can anyone please explain the pickle-like thing that sports announcer is fooling with? Was this some kind of trademark for him or something? Thanks!
+edselguru No worries! It's good information, and I appreciate the correction. Peace from Canada!
The thing is, he wasn't high on LSD when it happened... unless it was an afternoon game. LSD only lasts like 6 hours so he would have been coming down from that already. He said he was on Dexys and Bennys which "over 90% of the league" was on so I could see beat reporters not believing the story because he probably wasn't acting too odd. But all in all, this is one of the best pieces of media, anywhere.
Ok then how did he score a touchdown?
He caught the ball and thought he was in the NFL i guess
Tolerance or no tolerance if he was tripping on 70s good acid this is the greatest achievement in baseball hell it would be the greatest achievement in any sport.
They left out the best part of the story, the day after he pitched the no hitter he showed up to the park thinking he was going to pitch.  He didnt even remember doing it and had to be told by a groundskeeper "No Doc, you pitched yesterday.  You threw a no hitter!"  
Was high as fuck when watching, can reommend
Is a no-hitter a good thing? As someone who knows nothing about baseball.. I'm confused.
+Green Eagle yes i am aware of that...we're saying the same thing. i just said that IF someone were to strike out all 27 batters, it would be a Perfect Game...not that you HAVE to strike out all 27 batters for a perfect game. 
+Cody Starken The reason why it's called a "no-hitter" even though people are physically hitting the bat with the ball is because in baseball a "hit" is a very specific thing that means the person managed to get on base specifically because he hit the ball well enough. It does not simply mean the bat struck the ball.
I have watched this thirty times and love it.

Lol those were some very large doses, too.

SO FUNNY.  "I just scored a touchdown!" made me LOL hard.
What a character this guy was! No No: A Dockumentary is worth watching as well.
And people say acid is worse than weed, how many pitchers taking dabs have thrown a no no or discovered molecular structure? Zero, more achievements in science and other fields on lsd than on thc
People remember, Dock Ellis took LSD on the morning of his game because he thought it was his day off still, but he woke up later to find out that it was his day to pitch.

De cómo el beisbolista Dock Ellis hizo el partido de su vida yendo hasta arriba de ácido.
What happened to yesterday?!
Doc is full of shit , just wants some attention,
Lot's of good people fall victim to, self inflicted ,  drug abuse. It's always good to see a person with this problem turn there life around. My problem with Ellis is the way he was boasting about being high when he pitched the best game of his life, as if he were more proud of being high than throwing the no hitter. He made one bad decision when he decided to start using drugs and another when he decided to glorify it .
when I grow up I wanna be like dock ellis
back then, the standard doses were much higher, and 12/24 hour highs were common.
This is fantastic
I fuuuuckingg totally understand this video like right now it's just what.
I'm a better athlete when I medicate

Is there any video of this game? I don't even like sports and I want to see this.
Great film showing the spiritual odyssey of Dock Ellis from pitcher throwing no-hitter on LSD to drug counselor. If you liked this film, you'll love the new film "Baseball's Last Hero: 21 Clemente Stories" which also shows the spiritual side of baseball icon Roberto Clemente. I got it from Amazon.

" Of the 263 no-hitters ever thrown in the Big Leagues, we can only guess how many were aided by steroids, but we can say without question that only one was ever thrown on acid."   #1guy2be    The cartoon is a trip. ha!

This is the best video ever.
"High as a Georgia...." what???
High as a Georgia pine. Which are tall trees, high up in the air.
like others said you cant sleep while tripping on acid. end of story.
You can sleep but its not really sleep. he claims to have slept but doesn't remember anything. He was probably just so out of it.
+Mark Gjeloshaj   you sleep but you just don't know it because you fall asleep already dreaming...

What happened to yesterday?! hahaha so fucking brilliant
Starting pitcher...YOU, SUCKA!!
Steve Blass was sober, and he couldn't find home plate.

When performance-enhancing drugs were less reliable . . .
Dock EllisD! He's a fucking wizard.
...yup, that has always been on my bucket list too! WAY SOLID he was able get a check in that box.  An MLB no-no while "faced" on lysergic acid diethylamide. couldn't make that up if ya tried, u'd have to be trippin (~);}
Doc Ellis did it really happen? None the less this is funny.
He claims this is true but beat reporters for the team that was there do not believe him
Time to order some for the Cubs pitching staff,but chances are when they will wind up it will be on "L"ake "S"hore "D"rive!
...Oh my gosh, I've heard that Lake Shore Drive name so much, and only now do I get it...
lsd is overrated, it doesnt make you hallucinate. the high is more comparable to a cocaine high, excluding the inflated ego cocaine seems to give people. now if he pitched a no hitter on iowaska or dmt then id be giving the him props
You have clearly never taken LSD or cocaine.
u sir have never taken real lsd then. 
Yes it's true You BloodClaat Losers
Please, name of the song at 0:59 ??
how could he be dodging hit balls if he threw a no hitter?
+killbox thirteen That's a perfect game. A no hitter is a perfect game but with walks and errors
Balls are still hit in a perfect game. Just nobody reaches base. So a ball can easily be hit at a pitcher in a perfect game.

Há exatos 24 anos... Sempre dou risada deste video.
Amazing and true ... Gotta be!
Anyone know the song at 1:02?
Rufus Thomas - (Do the) Push and Pull (Part 1)
Wow that was hysterical 1970 baseball gem. Well done!
Is it possible to throw two no-hitters in the same ball game?
No. A no hitter is when you don't allow a hit for an entire game. Therefore it's impossible to throw two no hitters.
It IS possible to have two pitchers on opposing teams both toss no hitters in the same game.
This remains one of the bets sports stories of all time
Hilarious. Interesting effects though. It removes the pressure of winning and losing.

I saw this years ago, still funny. #nomas #dockellis #lsd #nohitter
Hilarious that the rookie kept sayin 'No-No' to him. It's common knowledge to ball players that it's bad luck to say that, like sayin 'shutout' to a hockey goalie. The kid probably could tell how wasted he was and was saying it to remind him to help him. Wow, helluva crazy story!
dude, i don't know how he could've handled playing baseball on acid. no way i could ever attempt that...

I've never howled so hard...this is the best!
I don't doubt it for a second.  While on acid, I have scored over a million points playing pacman with my boss watching.  Also won seven straight games in a chess tournament .  In some ways I am smarter while tripping.
yeah umm, how old are you ten? Do even know a thing about baseball??
+Rusty Decker Wow you're edgy, cool illuminati profile picture. I'm sure you're a star athlete too. But wait, only hopeless/friendless faggots need to act like they're part of a fake group.
It's looks so much like that tribe documentary

Tht must have been interesting..to say the least.
The mystery returns..lol..i bet his curveball, was wicked!!..
they need to make a movie out of this.

This video is inaccurate. First, NO MAJOR LEAGUE PLAYER had facial hair in 1970, so Dock would not have had the mustache. Second, the Pirates were still wearing the flannel sleeveless uniforms when this game was played. They did not switch to the double knits until after the All-Star Game when they moved into Three Rivers. 
Rollie Fingers, the ace relief pitcher had a handle bar mustache!
lol ironic how on his paychecks it probably read.....Ellis D.
I don't know Baseball but I'm guessing a no hitter is really good?
It means no one got a 'hit' -- as in no one hit the ball and then was called safe when running to first base. To put that into context, both teams usually get over 5 hits a game and usually around 10 per team is average. :)
It means that not only did the opposing team not score a single point, the pitcher prevented them from ever even coming close to getting a single point.
How about the greatest athletic achievement by a man.
Lol illest graphics!

All of you need to obtain deliverance from hell before you you take your last breath! Each man and woman is a sinner destined to hell, but Jesus Christ will let us into heaven if we believe in him alone. Jesus Christ is the original begotten son of God, [He is God and a Human} that lived a perfect life free from sin, was murdered on the cross for our sins, was buried in a tomb, and rose again on the 3rd day. Choose to place your faith in him alone, and he will give you eternal life and forgiveness of sins.
Doc be trippin', fo' shizzle, nizzle.  Saw some trails on that fastball, no question.
I wish I could watch a video of some ppl playing laser tag on acid.
