The history of the designated hitter in the World Series: 1973-1975: DH was NOT used in the World Series. 1976-1985: DH was used in even numbered years and not used in odd numbered years. 1986-present: DH used in American League ballparks and not used in National League ballparks.
At the home ballparks of the National League and American League champions.
During World Series games played in National League ballparks, National League rules are enforced, and the pitchers will both bat like any other position player. During World Series games played in American League ballparks, American League rules are in effect, and both teams have the option use a designated hitter and the pitcher will not bat if this option is taken. If, however, a DH is later put into a game as a position player, the DH option is then lost, and the pitcher must bat.
There are two leagues in American major league baseball, the American League and the National League. The American League has the designated hitter rule which allows for someone other than the pitcher to bat in the pitcher's place. The pitcher does not bat in the American League. The National League does not have the designated hitter rule. The pitcher does bat in the National League.
Greg Maddux of the Atlanta Braves started for the National League and David Wells of the New York Yankees started for the American League. The American League won 13-8.
There is no rule saying any pictures cannot bat. Usually (almost always) in American League games the pitchers do not bat and a designated hitter bats instead. When AL teams play in National league ballparks, they must play by NL rules and so the pitcher bats.

National League and American League doesn't matter in distance. Each park has their own field distances. The only part of ball parks that is the same length is the infield.
The main difference between pitching in the American League and the National League is that in the American League, the Pitcher has to pitch to all nine batters. In the National League, the Pitcher has to pitch to nine batters as well but the batter in the ninth spot is the opposing Pitcher and Pitchers aren't typically very skilled at batting.
Dan Bankhead was the first African-American pitcher to play in a major league game.
The American League (AL) was founded on January 28, 1901.
Well in the American league it is required to have a designated hitter for the pitcher but if the pitcher were to pitch in the national league the pitcher is required do both
no... the only difference between American and national league is that there is a DH in the roster for American league and the pitcher doesnt bat in American league... other than that it is exactly the same
Satchel Paige for the Cleveland Indians in 1948.
Sparky Lyle had a total of 190 saves from 1970 to 1979 in the American league.
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
A pitcher other than the pitcher who is pitching in the game that's being played.
