In baseball after the third out why is a ball thrown to the first baseman as he returns to the dugout?

That's the ball used by the firstbaseman to warm up the infielders the next time the team takes the field. It is an old tradition and has been used for years, ever since players stopped leaving their gloves on the field between innings in the 1950s. It saves the firstbaseman from searching for a warm up ball before going out to the field, as he already has a ball in his mit.

Why is carrying capacity important?

Carrying capacity is important in the ecosystem because The carrying capacity for any given area is not fixed. It can be altered by improved technology, but mostly it is changed for the worse by pressures which accompany a population increase. As the environment is degraded, carrying capacity actually shrinks, leaving the environment no longer able to support even the number of people who could formerly have lived in the area on a sustainable basis. No population can live beyond the environment's carrying capacity for very long.
