Shopping carts come in different sizes. Larger ones will hold more baseballs.

Very simple--umpires wear blue uniforms.

Well its hard to get games before they get out (unless beta). I reccomend you to work at a gamestop. (I used to and got a bunch of games before they came out.)

1. Download them (Which is illegal) 2. Become a games journalist and you get copies of the game about a month before hand to review it.

I don't know if it is an official rule but the umpires are always the ones that rub the balls down with the mud before the game.CORRECT ANSWER...(07/02/2011 @ 9:58 PM CDT)The answer listed above is incorrect. The balls come to the MLB already prepared with he special "mud." The company that provides them uses a very rare mud (which is obtained from an 'undisclosed' location - a well kept secret).The only thing that happens "before" the game is the home team prepares the balls by storing them in a climate controlled room, with a very specific temperature and humidity setting.The umpires themselves have no impact or involvement whatsoever in preparing the balls themselves, other than to provide the balls to the pitcher / catcher throughout the game.
