There are two leagues in American major league baseball, the American League and the National League. The American League has the designated hitter rule which allows for someone other than the pitcher to bat in the pitcher's place. The pitcher does not bat in the American League. The National League does not have the designated hitter rule. The pitcher does bat in the National League.

Ron Guidry led the American League with 9 Shutouts for the Yankees in 1978, and that is tops for a LH thrower. Also, Bob Lemon led with 10 Shutouts for Cleveland in 1948, and he batted left, but threw right.

The National League. The American League has a designated hitter.

The American League uses the Designated hitter, and the pitcher does not bat as in the National League.

The main difference between pitching in the American League and the National League is that in the American League, the Pitcher has to pitch to all nine batters. In the National League, the Pitcher has to pitch to nine batters as well but the batter in the ninth spot is the opposing Pitcher and Pitchers aren't typically very skilled at batting.

Well in the American league it is required to have a designated hitter for the pitcher but if the pitcher were to pitch in the national league the pitcher is required do both

no... the only difference between American and national league is that there is a DH in the roster for American league and the pitcher doesnt bat in American league... other than that it is exactly the same

The only time a National League team can use a DH is when they are playing against an American League in their stadium (so the National League team would be visitors). The opposite is true for the American League.. if they are playing a National League team in their stadium (so the American League would be visitors) they are required to have their pitcher bat

That was pitcher Vida Blue of the Oakland Athletics. Blue went 24-8 with a 1.82 ERA that season with 24 complete games, 8 shutouts, and 301 strikeouts.

There are no differences in the baseballs used on either league. The only difference is the American League has a Designated Hitter who bats for the pitcher, but the pitcher must bat in the National League. If a game is played between each league, the home team's rules apply.

Yes, but then the pitcher would have to bat

Pitchers have always taken their turn at bat in the national league. Only the American league has a "designated hitter". - bill
