In MLB, games between two American League teams always use the DH and games between two National League teams do not use the DH. When a team from the American League is playing a team from the National League, the rules used are those of the home team's league. If the home team is an American League team, the DH is used. If the home team is a National League team, the DH is not used.
There is a DH if the game is played in the American League team's ballpark. There is no DH if the game is played in the National League team's ballpark.
No, the national league pitchers have to bat and all national league teams play by taht rule and all American league teams have a DH
Yes. Both the American League and National League teams use the designated hitter in A.L. ballparks.
1997 - Glenallen Hill was the first dh for the Giants vs. Rangers
The only time a National League team can use a DH is when they are playing against an American League in their stadium (so the National League team would be visitors). The opposite is true for the American League.. if they are playing a National League team in their stadium (so the American League would be visitors) they are required to have their pitcher bat
Yes College baseball adhires to American league rules with a DH substituting in the lineup for the pitcher usually
The owners of the National League have decided not to adopted the DH rule the way the American League owners have. As things look now, it doesn't appear as if the DH will ever be in the National League. Even in the American League, the DH is a recent addition. The American League (founded as a part of MLB in 1901) let their pitchers hit, just like the National League teams all the way til 1973.
currently, only teams in the National league allow their pitchers to hit. The American League uses the DH (designated hitter) to bat for their pitchers. However, the DH is a very recent amendment to the game. Even the American League pitchers used to hit. The DH was instituted in 1973.
You normally look at if they have a DH or not. The DH, or designated hitter, is meant as a replacement hitter for your pitcher. These are normally your aging players who still have some power. If the team normally has a DH, then it is American League. If the team does not usually have a DH, then it is National League.
There are two major leagues in Japanese baseball, the Central League and the Pacific League. The Central League adopted the DH in 1975 but the Pacific League does not use the DH. Interleague play began in 2005 and the Pacific League now uses the DH when playing in a Central League team's park, similar to how the National League uses the DH when playing in an American League park.
It means designated hitter in baseball, the DH hits for the pitcher in the American league
