Apparently he threw his historic no-hitter while high on LSD.
“I didn’t even know I was supposed to pitch that day. I was in the middle of taking another hit of acid when my friend showed me the paper and sure enough, I was the starting pitcher. Somehow I had lost a day.”
Lucas said he was so high he didn’t even realize he had a no-no going until his shortstop told him in the 4th inning.
“Sometimes I’d see a streak of color coming off the ball after I threw it. Sometimes I’d see Brian from Family Guy behind the plate. Sometimes the ball looked like it was a part of my hand. But I never saw a batter.”
After he got the final out and secured the elimination game for Connecticut his teammates mobbed him and he shouted, “I am the true Lion King. I control the wind and the waves. Bow before me or suffer the fate of your ancestors!”
California eliminated Connecticut from the series on Tuesday night. Lucas is reportedly grounded.
