The Yankees are out of this world

 Photographs released by NASA this week show astronaut Garrett Reisman with the oh so recognizible Yankees logo on his sleeve during a nearly 8 hour space walk. On Reisman's equiptment is the number 27. Which is the number of World Titles the Yankees have won, of course. 

Dr. Reisman is a crew member on the space shuttle Atlantis, which is currently up in space conducting some work on the International Space Station. NASA says Reisman calls Parsippany, N.J. his hometown. 

Yankees fandom runs in the family, according to Reisman's mom.

"If I was up there, I would be wearing a Yankees patch, too," his mother, Sheila, told the New York Post. "We are big Yankees fans."
