Is there a designated hitter in the minor leagues?

The DH is used in all minor leagues. The only time where pitchers still bat is at the Double-A and Triple-A level, when both teams are National League affiliates; otherwise the DH is used.In the Pacific Coast League, pitchers only hit when both clubs are NL affiliates and both clubs agree to have their pitchers hit. The reason for this is that as players move up and get closer to reaching the majors, teams prefer to have the rules follow (as closely as possible) those of the major leagues

Why is there no dh for the National league?

The owners of the National League have decided not to adopted the DH rule the way the American League owners have.

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.

What is a dh?

the DH stands for designated hitter. it is a player who does not play in the field and only goes up to bat. The game has 9 players that play in the field and bat but if you are using the DH rule one of those players (the worst hitter who is USUALLY the pitcher) does not hit and instead the DH hits for him. This rule is played in the American League of the MLB and not in the National League. During interleague play the home team is the the rules that they use. One major criticism of the rule is that a pitcher who does not hit can freely throw a ball at another teams batter without the fear of having a ball thrown at him. DH was always a pro rule but has started to filter down to college and high school and many people believe it is silly for kids to use a rule that essentially allows someone to not have to play the field and another to not have to hit.
