NO NO: A DOCKUMENTARY

Esquire (Malaysia) - - MACHINERY -

(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.
