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.

Every game starts out with 72 baseballs. The average life of a baseball, is 6 putches, so if you take the average pitches thrown in a game 250 - 300, you get about 40 or 50 balls used in a game. A side note, every ball that will be used in a game has mud from Mississippi worked into the ball. This is why they are never bright white.

Using an average life span of a baseball in a typical game as 6 pitches and the average number of pitches being 275 per game. The number of balls used is 46. Factoring this number out to each team in the league playing 165 games and dividing by 2 since two teams play each other each game, the number of baseballs used during a typical MLB season would about 113,850 balls per year. According to MLB, between five and six dozen are used per game (60-70 balls). The home team has to have 90 new baseballs on hand for each game. That doesn't mean they'll use them all, but they must have them, just in case. The average life of the ball is 6 pitches. "According to Ensley, every major league game begins with six dozen balls. He goes on to explain that the average life of a ball is six pitches. Since most major league games average between 250 and 300 pitches, that would put the ball count at about 40 or 50 balls used per game". According to the MLB: "It says between five and six dozen baseballs are used during each baseball game, as many as 72 balls." Each ball costs about $3-dollars, so that works out to $216-dollars worth of balls for each baseball game.
