The 9 in the batting lineup will be exactly the same as the 9 in the field unless the team uses a Designated Hitter (DH). The DH bats for any of the nine fielding positions. It is usually the pitcher removed from the batting line-up when the DH rule is in place. In American Major League Baseball, the DH rule is in use in the American League and during the All Star Game / World Series when those games are in American League ballparks. b) In American Major League Baseball, all teams are allowed 40 players on the roster until the first regular season game.
