description:
On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis, former pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, pitched a no hitter against the Padres while he was tripping on LSD. An excerpt from the Wikipedia article on Ellis:

"Ellis had been visiting friends in Los Angeles and was still high when his girlfriend told him he had to pitch a game against the San Diego Padres that night. Ellis boarded a shuttle flight to the ballpark, took some amphetamines to mitigate the effects of the acid, and then threw a no-hitter despite not being able to feel the ball or clearly see the batter or catcher."

Is that crazy enough for this contest?

In honor of his feat, I present my mix for him. First a song about baseball, then a song about acid, then a song about baseball, then a song about acid, etc, etc.
