 Designated hitter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, the absence of a designated hitter has led to better pitching statistics in the National League, as each team's pitcher is often a weak hitter with a poor batting average.
1985, the designated hitter rule was used in all World Series games played even-numbered years, with pitchers batting in odd numbered years.) Thus, when a National League team plays in American League ballparks, the team receives the benefit of a stronger hitter in its lineup instead of the pitcher.
This changed the game in several ways; pitchers went deeper into games because they didn't need to be lifted for a pinch hitter, the double switch became unnecessary, and older players whose careers and skills were on the wane had a chance to play for an extra year or two.

 Encyclopedia: Pinch hitter
In the National League of North America 's Major League Baseball, the pitcher is often pinch hit for in the middle or late innings because pitchers are often poor hitters.
Pinch hitters are often used to replace a starting player when a substitute is thought to have a better chance of reaching base or helping other runners to score.
Nearly all other leagues use the designated hitter rule; thus, pitchers seldom bat, removing one situation where a pinch hitter may be desired.

 CBA- Designated Hitter Referendum
It is not mandatory that a club designate a hitter for the pitcher, but failure to do so prior to the game precludes the use of a Designated Hitter for that game.
The Designated Hitter may be used defensively, continuing to bat in the same position in the batting order, but the pitcher must then bat in the place of the substituted defensive player, unless more than one substitution is made, and the manager then must designate their spots in the batting order.
A hitter may be designated to bat for the starting pitcher and all subsequent pitchers in any game without otherwise affecting the status of the pitcher(s) in the game.

 Common Hitting Faults  In teaching hitting mechanics to youth
Another method that can be used to reinforce the concept of balance in one's hitters is to speak in terms of "body eyes" There are seven body eyes on a hitter.
In an inside-out swing, the hitter will strive to take the knob of the bat to the inside of the baseball.
Using the body eye concept, when a hitter is facing a pitcher, to have good vision and balance in order to hit the approaching pitch, the hitter must have five body eyes facing the pitcher.

 Baseball Batting Tips and Drills
The hitter sets up at the plate with a bat, strides at the proper time, follows the ball with his head into the catcher's glove, and calls "ball" or "strike" as the ball hits the glove.
The goal is for the hitter to strike the much heavier ball without having the bat decelerate at the impact point.
The most valuable advice that I can give a young hitter is to think about hitting the ball up the middle.

 WebBall: Scouting and Recruiting: Hitter Qualities
A hitter with a high strikeout and low walk total is swinging at too many bad pitches, for instance, and unless that's corrected he'll never hit at a consistent level.
A hitter with major league power will regularly hit the ball over the fence in batting practice and should be able to drive the ball over 400 feet.
A hitter should be able to turn on a good fastball on the inside part of the pate.

 PECOTA Hitting Forecast Glossary and Reference
In the case of very old or very young hitters, there may not be a significant number of hitters who played at that age, and so the results of their forecast may be less reliable.
In addition to the probability distribution for a given hitter, which appears in blue, the chart also includes a normal distribution on EQA for all hitters in the league ("Norm"), and a dashed line representing the performance of a replacement level hitter ("Replace") at his position.
In some cases, this is the result of a comparable player not yet having appeared in the comparable year in question; for example, a hitter with a comparable year of 2001 will not yet have completed all five seasons that would be used in the evaluation.

 Baseball softball coaching tips practice drills defensive and offensive practice plans from pro coaches
The hitter says the word "ball" when he first sees the ball, which should be when the ball is about to leave the coach's hand.
Behind the pitcher or the hitter is the best angle for seeing the flight of the bat and for observing how well the hitter stays "inside" the ball.
Too often hitters and coaches are overly concerned with mechanics; the most important ingredients of hitting are when, how well and how long the ball is seen.

Why not let the pitcher do his job and have a real hitter substitute for him in the offensive role?
The major advantage is obvious and well-documented: it gets a real hitter into the lineup in place of the pitcher.

 Practical Power Volleyball Strategy
These hitters will now have to swing at generic high ball sets, which are very blockable.
If blocking outside (their Strong-Side hitter), face the hitter and stay centered on the hitter's hitting (right) shoulder, moving along the net as necessary to stay lined up with that shoulder; stopping and planting as it is clear this hitter is hitting.
The hitters are supposed to be getting focused on the opposing server or the opposing hitter and shouldn't feel the need to turn around to make sure the setter has seen the signal.
