Wednesday’s first pitch to be thrown out in space


I’m not kidding. NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman with throw out the first pitch before Wednesday’s game against the Red Sox from the International Space Station. The Parsippany native has a Yankee banner, some dirt from the pitcher’s mound at the Stadium, and a George Steinbrenner autographed hat keeping him company as he spends the next 3 months up in the final frontier. Only the Yankees.
