An anniversary you might not hear much about



Today is the 40th anniversary of the game Dock Ellis no-hit San Diego, supposedly under the influence of LSD.
Some people, including Bill James, have questioned whether this actually happened, but to me the amazing thing is there have been several songs written about the supposed feat, including this one:

And probably some more.

It should not go unnoted, is what I'm saying.

Dock Ellis, RIP.
