How many baseballs will be used in a single MLB season?

Major League Baseball uses about 160,000 baseballs in a season. the lifespan of 1 is 7 pitches. the average baseball lasts 9 pitches. That's as close as I can come. OK. Let's say the average baseball lasts 9 pitches. Let's also say the average inning lasts 30 pitches (15 per half inning). We'll approximate the total number of pitches per game at 270. That would make 30 baseballs used per game (270 / 9). If all 30 teams played the entire 162 scheduled games in a season, that would be 2,430 games played. So for this example, that would make 72,900 baseballs used in one season.
