No No: A Dockumentary - Rotten Tomatoes

No No: A Dockumentary, a portrait of Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis and the no-hitter he threw while on acid, is at 100 percent.

Movie Info

On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 137 years of organized professional baseball, it’s the only no-hitter tossed while the pitcher was on LSD. Dock was often embroiled in controversy on and off the field. While professional baseball hadn’t fully embraced racial equality, he was an outspoken leader who lived the expression ‘Black is Beautiful!’ His fearlessness enabled him to become one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 70’s and a trailblazer for a new wave of civil rights.

Brisbee: Is Buck Farmer the best baseball adult movie name in recent history?

Max St. Pierre gets extra credit from me because I feel like it could be a female star’s name as well.

Buck Farmer made his major league debut for the Tigers on Wednesday. This means it’s time to plow through the best adult-film names in baseball over the past 25 years, separate the wheat from the chaff, and see where Farmer ranks…

10. Paul Swingle (1993)
9. Jumbo Diaz (2014)
8. Jeff Manship (2013-14)
7. Max St. Pierre (2010)
6. Scott Service (1992-2004)
5. Jeff Bronkey (1993-94)
4. Buck Farmer (2014)
3. Rich Harden (2003-11)
2. Butch Huskey (1993-2000)
1. Randy Ready (1983-95)

Fresno Grizzlies ‘TMNT Night’ featured a cosplay wedding proposal

I’ve heard of the Splendid Splinter, but this is ridiculous!

The Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball team flooded the Internet in the past couple weeks leading up to their “TMNT Night,” which by all accounts was a rousing success. There were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed jerseys and hats, the Turtles even showed up in person, free pizza was given away, the team mascot dressed up like Splinter. Good times were had by all.

In fact, it was even a life-changing night, as two TMNT superfans GOT ENGAGED ON THE FIELD.
