Was Doc Gooden on cocaine when he threw his no hitter in 1996, I wonder?
On May 26, 1959, Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitched a perfect game for 12 innings against the Milwaukee Braves, but lost the no-hitter and the game in the 13th inning. The game was played at Milwaukee County Stadium.
Haddix only threw 115 pitches in that game.
If the Pirates, who had multiple chances to score in the first 9 innings, had gotten one run, Harvey would have only thrown 80(!) pitches.
Also, Don Hoak was a double goat for Pittsburgh. He made a baserunning error that cost them at least one run early on AND made the throwing error that ruined the perfecto, and put the guy on base that Adcock drove in with a double.

My daughter was born. I didn't know who Dock Ellis was, but cool. What a day that was!
While fortified with that and other substances, had the best game of
pool in my life because i could see all the angles and cleared the table
to end the game. (opponent only got one shot for the break).
p.s. not famous
I also had a very good night at a poker table on LSD. Not at a casino, just at a friend's house.
