I believe it is the Delaware River. I seem to remember the term "Delaware mud."

I saw a post which claimed the baseball mud comes from Baltimore, as the dirt there is 'extra fine'. Although many years ago, as a resident of the Philadelphia area I was told the apparently widely accepted story of how the mud comes from only one secret place in New Jersey, there may be some truth to the Baltimore story as I vividly recall the infield dirt at a funky softball field where we played bar league games, was the finest I had ever seen. The outfield was trash, but that infield was the best. I saw it, and it was major league quality, if not even better.

Used baseballs are either thoroughly cleansed to be used in other games, used in batting practice, or recycled to make new baseballs.

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.
