It’s a Hell of a Story

Dave Winer turned up such an amazing story about major league baseball in 1970.  A pitcher for the Pittsburg Pirates beat the San Diego Padres in a 2-0 complete game in San Diego. He hit a batter, allowed three stolen bases and threw more walks than strikeouts in the game, but he still won the game. And not only that, he also threw a no-hitter! 

But wait, there's more! He did this while quite high on LSD!! Don't forget, this was 1970. As you can imagine, MLB didn't go out of their way to publicize all the details about this game, but it really did happen. Read the full story about this and also watch the video made about it. This is a great American story!
