NO NO: A DOCKUMENTARY
(2014) Directed by Jeff Radice
A “no no”, or no-hitter, is a baseball pitcher’s perfect game, where no batter hits the ball. It’s rare, with only 295 in US pro baseball from some 213,000 games. In 1970, Dock Ellis of the Pittsburgh Pirates says he threw a no-no against the San Diego Padres while high on LSD. (He’d partied hard and got his playing days mixed up.) This engaging film reveals more than mere debunking (or not) of myth.
