The baseball thrown in the game was authentic, but it seemed that Morgan was using a large flashlight for the bat.

Meir throws the ball and Morgan manages to hit him, but sends him back to his opponent and makes him after the first throw.

The Fox television station worked with the crew to add a sound bite from sports boss Joe Buck, who can be heard in the background.

Meir later tweeted a photo in honor of the World Series, in which baseball floats in front of the windows of the space station with the earth in the background.

She wrote: & # 39; This 17,500 km / h fastball found its way to the dome of the space station. & # 39;

& # 39; We hope everyone enjoys watching the World Series promotion back on Earth! & # 39;

The mentioned of 17,500 km / h in the tweet is a reference to how a spacecraft must travel to stay in orbit.

Meir and her colleague and friend made history two weeks ago after completing the first fully feminine space walk.

In a more than seven-hour mission outside the International Space Station, the women successfully completed their goal of repairing a broken power regulator that complemented the solar network.

Koch and Meir have replaced battery units, called BCDU & # 39; s, after they were unable to give the ISS more power.

The failure had not significantly affected the crew or its mission, but still had to be repaired.

According to NASA, BCDU & # 39; s regulate the charge for batteries that draw energy from the station's solar collectors to supply power while the station is running & # 39; at night.

WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION?

The international space station ISS is a scientific and technical laboratory of $ 100 billion (£ 80 billion) that runs 250 km above the earth.

It has been permanently manned since November 2000 by rotating crews of astronauts and cosmonauts.

Research on board the ISS often requires one or more of the unusual conditions in a low Earth orbit, such as low gravity or oxygen.

ISS studies have researched human subjects, space medicine, life sciences, natural sciences, astronomy and meteorology.

The US space agency Nasa spends around $ 3 billion (£ 2.4 billion) a year on the space station program, a level of funding endorsed by the Trump government and Congress.

A commission from the US House of Representatives overseeing Nasa has begun viewing the program after 2024.

Alternatively, the money could be used to accelerate planned human space initiatives to the moon and Mars.

Koch, who is also ready to complete the longest single space flight by a woman while in orbit around Earth until February 2020, said that milestones in the gender such as the space walk are particularly important.

& # 39; There are many people who derive motivation from inspiring stories of people who are like them, and I think it is an important aspect of the story to tell & # 39 ;, she told a NASA briefing this month Houston.

& # 39; What we are doing now shows all the work of the last decades of all the women who have worked to take us to where we are now, & Meir added.
