Japanese astronaut plays baseball in space
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Baseball is usually a team sport, but in outer space you can sometimes play by your own rules.
Japanese astronaut Satoshi Furukawa decided to have some fun with the laws of physics by playing a game of one-man baseball at the International Space Station.
First he delivered the pitch and then quickly floated to the other side of the room to hit the ball with a bat. He connected on the swing, and then played defense where he made the catch.
The astronaut has returned to Earth since this video was taken. In baseball lingo, he is a true three-tool player.
