What is DHS?

designated hitter. In the major leagues DH's are only used in the American League. In the NL league the pitcher has to bat. Basically it is a designated hitter for the pitchers. But when AL and NL teams play each other the AL team does need to bat their pitcher.

Do American league pitchers bat?

There is no rule saying any pictures cannot bat. Usually (almost always) in American League games the pitchers do not bat and a designated hitter bats instead. When AL teams play in National league ballparks, they must play by NL rules and so the pitcher bats.


You are a new baseball fan and you are watching the Rangers play the Astros and you are wondering why the Rangers pitchers are batting?

When an American League team (Rangers) plays in the ballpark of a National League team (Astros), they play by the rules of the NL. This means no designated hitter, and thus the pitchers must bat. If played in the Rangers ballpark, then the Astros would use a designated hitter per AL rules.
