Is foul ball counted as a strike?

It depends on how the game is being played. Most of the time, foul balls don't count as a strike; you can hit a ton of foul balls while you're up to bat and it won't matter. If you're playing a strict game of baseball, though, if you go up to bat and hit two foul balls, they count as strikes. Then, if you miss the ball or whatever, that would be your third strike. And you're out. :) Foul balls count as strikes when every the batter does not have two strikes, once a batter gets two strikes foul balls are no longer counted as strikes.

I would say about 85-90 baseballs are used in a game. I believe, if memory serves, Rawlings estimates closer to 112-120 balls per game.

How many balls do they start with for a major league baseball game?

I heard, while watching a major league game, as a trivia question that the answer was over 400 (can't remember the actual count) new baseballs had to be on hand prior to the start of a major league game. I have actually tried to count while watching a game but you don't get to see everything happen to the ball. I have actually counted 72 foul balls into the stands, this does not include balls into the dirt, homerun balls, balls thrown out by umpire so I find it hard to believe the count would be so low. I tried to do a search but everyone wants to state how many are used in a game and not how many have to be on hand prior to the start of the game.

Why are baseballs used for 4-5 pitches in a game?

If the ball hits the dirt in front of the plate, by a wild pitch or a foul ball, it is tossed because it may be scuffed. All other foul balls either go in the stands directly or the fielder retrieved it and throws it into the stands. If the ball is put in play that becomes the third out, it is usually thrown into the crowd. that's why they don't last long. PS, They throw the ball in the stands to help heal the wounds to the fans caused by the 1994 strike
