Each team: 2 pitchers for every 3 fielders. Each team has a total of 25 players.
So, ON EACH TEAM there are 10 pitchers and 15 fielders

There are 12 teams in the league.
So, the TOTAL number of pitchers = 12(10) = 120
And the TOTAL number of fielders = 12(15) = 180

The number of pitchers in the league is how much less than the number of fielders in the league?
180 - 120 = 60

Answer: C
