Astronaut Buzz Aldrin visits Dodger Stadium

Buzz Aldrin, the second person ever to walk on the moon, paid a visit to Dodger Stadium on Monday.

Sure, the Dodgers want you to believe that the astronaut was on hand to participate in the team's Memorial Day celebrations. After all, Aldrin served more than 20 years in the Air Force. But we'd like to think that he and Tommy Lasorda are meeting in secret to plan the launch of a new baseball franchise ... in space.

Ah, space -- where all home runs are moonshots, and AstroTurf is, well, literally AstroTurf.
