DH stands for Designated Hitter. The Designated hitter does not play on the field defensively and is usually the strongest hitter on the team - such as David Ortiz and Frank Thomas. The national league teams do not have a DH

How many players are they in baseball?

The question is vague and there are multiple answers: a) There are 9 players in the field, and 9 in the batting lineup. 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. The roster limit is then 25 players until August 31st. After September 1st, a team may increase their roster back to 40 players. The increased player roster during the pre-season allows teams to determine what players they want for the regular season. The increased roster at the end of the season allows farm team players to gain experience playing in the Majors. Should a team qualify for post season play, the roster returns to 25 players and those players must have been on the roster prior to August 31st.

Can the DH in HS baseball play a defensive position later in the game?

No. The DH cannot play a defensive position unless he is brought in for the person for whom he is DH-ing. This is a full substitution and negates the DH status. Should the coach re-enter the original player, he must bat in place of the original DH, and the original DH may not re-enter the game.

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.
