Soulman, David Wells claims that he was drunk in 1998 when he pitched a perfect game for the NY Yankees. He had been out all night partying and was "still half drunk". There is an example of a proffessional athlete performing while intoxicated. Alberto Tomba was well known for his partying. He quipped during his second olympics "now that I am older I need more rest, I will no longer party until 5am with three women. I'll party till 3am with five women!" Tommy Moe injured himself serving beers after the Hannenkamm in a rowdy bar. Just a couple of examples. Bill 'Spaceman' Lee probably doesn't qualify as resent, but was known to pitch on LSD.
