According to The Tallahasee Online, an average ball only last 6 pitches and the average game runs 250-300 pitches for 40-50 balls per game. The Baseball Propectus web site quoting Keith Wolley states the average game has 77 batters so that tells us the average ball last for 1-2 batters.

The actual number of baseballs used during a game varies. However, the average is about 46 baseballs per baseball game.

The number of baseballs used in a 9 inning game can differ from many foul balls and homeruns. So there is no exact number of baseballs used in a 9 inning game.

They start out a game with tons and tons of baseballs. They have to be ready for foul balls, home runs, they even replace ground balls

I'm probably right but if I'm not I'm sorry anyways, in a baseball game they usually prepare 72 baseballs and i play baseball

The MBL teams start out with at least 200 baseballs on hand. They may or may not use all of them.

There are a number of factors that can cause this number to vary. In a typical game a batter, in the top of the order, will average about 3 at bats per 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.

Most umpires usually start with (6) six baseballs. We try to keep no less than (3) in our pouch at any time, which keeps the game moving.

Dozens. There is no specific number because it depends on how many are hit out of play

In the game of baseball the batter is the player who is at bat. There are many rules that the batter must follow. One of the most important rules is that the batter cannot leave his position in the batter's box once the pitcher comes to set position.

it means average of how many times the batter hits the ball

Each batter can have as many as they want so there is no real limit.

7 baseballs fit across the front of home plate making it 7 baseballs wide.

No, it's not a rule. Most baseballs in a Major League game last only 9 pitches before being removed from play. But many Little League games will go the entire game with only 1 or 2 baseballs used.

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.

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.

There are about 2 million baseballs made each year by the Rawlings company. This means that there are about 5,480 baseballs made each day.

No baseballs are wasted. As for the average lifespan, in MLB, the average baseball lasts around 9 pitches due to foulballs, scuffs, homeruns etc..
