A lot of people like the DH rule, but there's as much of people who hates the rule. The Designated Hitter rule was adopted in 1973. The designated hitter, like other experimental baseball rule changes, was in part the brainchild of A's owner Charlie Finley, though National League president John Heydler had informally proposed the rule in the 1920s. It was used first in Spring Trainning games in 1969. Ron Blomberg was the first DH player. Now I was wondering what you think about the DH rule and why? If you don't like it, would you reconsider if both leagues had it if yes why, if no why? Discuss.
