There are two "leagues" in Major League Baseball in the United States. The National League and the American League. The two champions of each league meet in the "World Series" each year.

There are 25 players as "active" status on a professional Baseball team at the major league level. About half of those players are pitchers and 5 of them are starting pitchers. Starting pitchers have a standard rest periods, so they do not play every game. The other pitchers also do not play every game.

Out of the other non-pitcher players, only 8 in the National League and 9 in the American League start the game. If there are no substitutions, the "bench players" would not get a chance to bat.

But, there maybe games in which all the relief pitchers and bench players go into the game due to extra innings and on very rare occasions, a call goes to a starting pitcher to coming as a relief pitcher. Even in these rare circumstances, those pitchers may never get a chance to bat and the other starting pitchers, getting ready for the next game certainly will not come into the game. In the American League, the rule called "the Designated Hitter" allows a team to choose a player that only hits for a certain position. Since pitchers usually do not practice hitting, they tend to be not very good hitters, so the Designated Hitter, or DH, is used for the pitcher. So, in American League games, the pitcher never gets to bat.
