CRAP !!
Believe it or not, tho number is more like 900,000 !
Thankfully 900,000 balls are not simply thrown out each year. However, some
would argue they are still a complete waste given the price tag. If you
calculate in tax and shipping, the average cost of a dozen baseballs is
$72.00. That means the MLB is spending around $5.5 million dollars each
season on baseballs alone.
