It varies from season to season.

too many. lol. they counted the number of baseball they went through in a single game once and it was around 100. every team roughly has 162 games in a season without playoffs so each team would roughly have used 16,200 baseballs in a season

the lifespan of 1 is 7 pitches.

The actual number of baseballs used during a game varies. However, the average is about 46 baseballs per baseball game.

In a single season there are from 291,600 to 340,200 balls used. There are usually 60 to 70 balls used in a single 9 inning game, but they usually have 90 on hand.

I believe my math is faulty in my first response below. The following is the workup for the estimate of total baseballs used in a Regular Season in the MLB:2010 average pitches per team per game.....146lifespan of a Baseball in pitches.........................7games in the Regular Season........................162number of teams in the league........................30balls per team per game..................................21 = 146 ÷ 7balls used in Reg Seas by team..................3,379 = 21 x 162balls used in Reg Seas by all teams......101,366 = 30 x 3,379more than anyone can count I'm sure, lol, but as a guess, I'll say around half a million if not moreIt has been calculated that the average life-span of a baseball is 7 pitches. The average pitch count in a game is 285. So a good guess is about 41 baseballs to a game. There are 162 games in a season, so almost 6,596 per team, per year. There are 30 teams, so that's approximately 197,871.43 baseballs used per season. This only accounts for regular season games.This number does not include pre-season games, the All Star break and the post-season games, including the World Series.

Rawlings baseballs are the official baseballs used in the major leagues. BPL

The number of baseballs used in a 9 inning game can differ from many foul balls and homeruns. So there is no exact number of baseballs used in a 9 inning game.

Used baseballs are either thoroughly cleansed to be used in other games, used in batting practice, or recycled to make new baseballs.
