Astronaut Plays Baseball by Himself in Space

As a child I watched Bugs Bunny once play tennis with himself, hitting from one end of the court and zipping down to return his own stroke. Wished I could do it. Now I have a new hankering: I want to hit my own pitches, as Japanese astronaut Satoshi Furukawa does here in the International Space Station during mission 28 & 29. Guy was alone and decided to use his time well. Nice change-up. But with his quick bat, he’s too good for his own stuff. In Game 2 I want to see him field the thing and throw himself out.
