How many sets of uniforms does each player have?

As the mother of one time Little League players, how do the Red Sox get the uniforms so clean, how many sets of uniforms does each player have, and how many do they take when they are on the road?

From Red Sox beat writer Chris Snow: Each player has two home jerseys and two road jerseys, plus four pairs of home white pants and four pairs of road gray pants. When the team goes on the road, the equipment staff also brings additional pants of varying lengths and cuts, in case a player requests a different look. For instance, Johnny Damon wore short pants hiked up just below the knee in Detroit. Clubhouse attendants wash out dirt and grass stains using detergent that contains a protein release agent.
