Fielding practice, I believe. Also, possibly, a way of showing off a little for the fans. I believe that it's an age old tradition meant to keep the fielders' arms warm during the middle of the game.
It stands for Putout Assists. In other words, when a player assists in a putout (IE: shortstop tossed ball to second baseman for a force out) he gets a PA.Plate Appearances which is the total number of times a batter completed an at bat.
I think either ball is tossed out, if there is a mark noticed on the ball. You will see the defensive team do this, b/c any mark on the ball enhances the batters ability to see the ball rotation on the pitch, thereby allowing him to effectively anticipate what movement the ball will make.
Yes, Rodney Lange was a 15 year old 2nd baseman playing in the old 3&2 league when he was killed in a freak accident. Ball was hit between first and second base and was scooped up by first baseman.

The ball gets handed to the umpire once it hits the dirt and not in the instance of the baseball hitting the dirt in the field is up to the Home Plate Umpire's discretion however Pitchers have the rights to request a new baseball provided it becomes too dirty to get a grip on. Pitchers will like the dirt on the ball because it will be able to move more however the opposing team and Umpires will find this an unfair advantage which is the reason in which baseballs will usually be tossed out of play to the umpire but it doesn't always happen in the event of a batted ball hitting the infield dirt.

The first Frisbees were aluminum pie pans made by the Frisbee pie company of Connecticut. They did not have a name. Teenagers would toss the pie pans around for fun. Eventually, a toy manufacture saw the teenagers tossing the pie pans around, and came up with plastic circular discs that could be tossed around, and he named them the Frisbee after the original pie pans that the teenagers tossed around.
