Best Answer

The American League uses a designated hitter.

Some exceptions:

If an American League team plays at a National League Park (Yankees play at Shea Stadium or the new Citi Field against the Mets) then the American League team can't use a Designated Hitter.

If a National League team plays at an American League Park (Mets play at Yankees Stadium) then the National League team is allowed to use a designated hitter.

What is a designated hitter in baseball?

In the MLB, the American league games have a Designated Hitter that hits for the pitcher. It is also liek tht in college and maybe high school. In the MLB if the American league team plays an inter-league game at there stadium vs a National League team at home, the designated hitter rule is in effect. But if the American league team plays away vs the national league team, the DH is not in effect. In grade school baseball, the DH can hit for any player, even a position player. For example, on the Boston Red Sox, their common designated hitter is David Ortiz.
