I don't know the exact number but yes there are fewer players on away games. Might be a function of what the school program can afford on away games. Might take a few games but son will know where he stands. Parents of pitchers have it rough unless a starter. Son's first series freshman year was away, we made arrangements to go for the weekend. Son's response "i dunno" when asked if he thinks he will get any playing time (positional player). 3 hrs before game time we get a text he is starting. Go to the games if financially you can. We spent maybe 4-5 hours/day with son before and after games. He usually had a teammate tag along whose parents weren't there. Had some memorable moments and met some fine young men. Son probably won't admit it but on the few away games we didn't go it appeared he was a little bummed when he found out.
