The number is actually, as of 2005, over 35,000 baseballs per MLB team, on the low end. Of course this depends on the team itself and it can vary with each team and stadium. Since over 2 million baseballs are now produced annually by Rawlings for the Majors and retail, that number could be closer to 55,000 this season.

This number includes Spring Training balls, batting practice balls and game balls, and it comes from a very reliable source, a team equipment manager (see article in links).

Update - OK I don't see the links section, it was printed in an article about the Pirates in 2005.

Here are the numbers

Total MLB Teamd: 30 Games(regular season 162 Balls (avg per game) 40

That gives you a total of 194400 baseballs used in a regular season

you've to divide that by 2. So the answer is 97,200 balls on average. 2 teams playing a game means 1 game each but not 2 games overall

About 50 but some players go through bats faster than others. Some say 1 per 10 at bats. Some bat 100 times, some 600.

The number of uniforms a Major League Baseball team uses in one season depends on how fast they wear out. Players usually go through more pants than they do shirts, though.
