Can a relief pitcher hit instead of the DH?

Yes. There is no obligation to use the DH in baseball. A somewhat confusing question. A relief pitcher can be used AS the DH. However normal DH rules apply and that player could not pitch in the game. A relief pitcher can pinch hit FOR the DH as well. That pitcher then becomes the DH and normal rules apply. I am pretty sure that a relief pitch that enters the game as a pitcher can not be inserted into the lineup for the DH but I could be wrong. Of course you don't have to use the DH but you can't use a relief pitcher in your lineup unless he's playing a position in the field. Yes. When you bring in the relief pitcher, you can at that time have him hit in place of the DH. You can also have him pinch-hit for the DH at a later point in the game. Note that in both cases, there is no longer a DH and all pitchers must hit. Baseball rule 6.10.

How many players are in a starting lineup in baseball?

The number of players of a baseball team that are starters depends on whether or not the league uses designated hitters. If the league does not use designated hitters, each team's starting lineup will include 9 players. (Catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, shortstop, pitcher, left field, right field, and center field). If the league does use designated hitters, each team's starting lineup will include 10 players. (Catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, shortstop, pitcher, left field, right field, center field, and the designated hitter). In each case, however, each team's batting lineup will always include 9 players. In DH friendly leagues, generally it is the pitcher that does not bat (although technically any player could be replaced by the designated hitter) and is replaced by the DH. In DH unfriendly leagues, the pitcher is not replaced and receives at-bats.

1998 New York Yankees starting lineup?

While a roster changes throughout the season, the top 5 rarely changed in the Yankee lineup in 1998: Knoblauch 2B Jeter SS O'Neill RF Williams CF Martinez 1B They used a lot of people in LF and at DH and, while Posada was the starting catcher, Girardi played a lot. Brosius at 3B was regular as clockwork, but his spot in the line up depended a lot on those other three spots. On Opening Day, the bottom four were: Davis DH Curtis LF Brosius 3B Girardi C But in the first game of the World Series the bottom four were: Martinez (with Davis 5th instead) Brosius 3B Posada C Ledee LF However, The regular contributions throughout the season of Strawberry at DH and Raines in the OF should not be forgotten either.
