Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson spotted at Spring Training game -- but in space, no one can hear you cheer

Scientist, television host, and all-around BAMF (Brilliant Astrophysicist and Media Fixture) Neil deGrasse Tyson was spotted at a Reds-Diamondbacks Spring Training game on Saturday night. You might recognize him from PBS's NOVA, his frequent appearances on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, his immortalization as a meme  -- or, you know, actual science conferences with scientists doing science together, if that's your thing.

Tyson is also the author of one of our favorite baseball tweets of all time:

We're psyched to see him in the ballpark, even if we're vaguely disappointed that it's not freeze-dried astronaut ice cream he's snacking on. And, of all people, Neil deGrasse Tyson isn't an Astros fan? Come on.
