Dock Ellis throws a 2-0 no-hitter against the Padres in San Diego during the first game of a double-header. The former Pirates’ right-hander, who became an advocate of anti-drug programs, claims he was under the influence of LSD while tossing the most memorable game in his career. However, Ellis’ story, which was originally told to Pittsburgh Press writer Bob Smizik by David Lander – Squiggy, of Laverne & Shirley fame – has largely been discredited in the years since. Ellis was well known for telling fantastic tales just to see what kind of reaction he would get.
