What is a dh?

the DH stands for designated hitter. it is a player who does not play in the field and only goes up to bat. The game has 9 players that play in the field and bat but if you are using the DH rule one of those players (the worst hitter who is USUALLY the pitcher) does not hit and instead the DH hits for him. This rule is played in the American League of the MLB and not in the National League. During interleague play the home team is the the rules that they use. One major criticism of the rule is that a pitcher who does not hit can freely throw a ball at another teams batter without the fear of having a ball thrown at him. DH was always a pro rule but has started to filter down to college and high school and many people believe it is silly for kids to use a rule that essentially allows someone to not have to play the field and another to not have to hit.

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.

Why is there no dh for the National league?

The owners of the National League have decided not to adopted the DH rule the way the American League owners have. As things look now, it doesn't appear as if the DH will ever be in the National League. Even in the American League, the DH is a recent addition. The American League (founded as a part of MLB in 1901) let their pitchers hit, just like the National League teams all the way til 1973.


If the DH is moved to the catcher position who replaces the DH?

Once the DH moves to a defensive position the DH is no longer allowed in the lineup. In that case, the pitcher would assume the position in the batting order of the defensive player replaced by the DH.

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.
