Hundreds and even thousands of bats are used in an MLB Season. One reason for that is because of broken bats. But another reason for that is because a lot of professional hitters are very superstitious players. They will use a bat once and depending on what happens, they may never use it again.

It all depends, each team has thousands of bats. But anywhere from 9 to even 50 bats could be used in a game. Obviously bat's breaking is a reason. But another reason is because of players being streaky and superstitious bat users. Some players switch every at bat, while some stick with a bat during a streak, and try a new one as soon as the streak ends. There are unique situations where players use a different bat based on the situation as well because of the size or even whether it is a big or small barrel.

many players have a different number of bats. but I've usually seen them keep 3-4 bats in the dugout. just in case they break one.

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 &divide; 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.
