July 13, 2011 - Cory Giger
Most Pirates fans have heard the story of how Dock Ellis claims he pitched a no-hitter while high on LSD in 1970. Well, none other than Deadspin.com has done some reporting questioning the validity of the story, and it includes comments from longtime Mirror columnist John Mehno.
The story also has comments from former Post-Gazette columnist Bob Smizik, who broke the story in 1984.
It's a good read if you're interested in Pirates history and just plain crazy baseball stuff like throwing a no-hitter while high.
