When David Wells tossed his perfect game against the Twins a few years ago, he did it half lit. The night before, he was at a party and got an hour's worth of sleep. This was reported on WBBM-AM, and this is part of an upcoming autobiography. Gee, I wonder what he'll say about his time with the White Sox.

That still doesn't beat Dock Ellis' perfect game that he threw while on acid...

I wish he would have had a few more of these :gulp: while on the southside.

Rumor has it that Don Larsen, a known drinker at the time, didn't expect to face the dodgers again in the ws and attended a party the eve of his perfect game. He pitched the game with a hang-over, so much for stretching exercises to keep loose.
He and Wells had attended the same high school, I can't rememder the name.
