Rawlings, founded in 1887, has had an exclusive contract to supply the major leagues with baseballs since 1977. The Costa Rica plant makes about 2.2 million balls a year and sells about 1.8 million of them to the majors.
Since 1990, Rawlings has made all of the baseballs used by MLB in Costa Rica.

For one thing, colleges use metal bats and the MLB uses wood bats. That is about it.
major league bats are hollow on top because it helps to even out the weight when you swing, making your hits better
71,239 in the 2009 season.
about 3-4 bats a year usually only replaced when they are broke

Yes because aluminum bats could hurt the players and fans because of hitting the ball to hard.
