A player who bats in place of a designated teammate in the batting lineup.
The Designated Hitter, or 'DH', is a player in a team's lineup that has a turn at-bat but does not have to play the field. In Baseball Mogul, this player automatically bats for the pitcher. The Designater Hitter was added in the American League in 1973. In games during or after the 1973 season, Baseball Mogul will use the DH for all games taking place in American League stadiums (unless you change this setting in the League Editor).

A designated hitter (often shortened to "DH"), is an official position adopted by Major League Baseball's American League in 1973 that allowed teams to boost sagging offensive performances by designating a player to bat in place of the pitcher. Since then, most amateur and minor leagues have adopted the same or similar rule, but the National League has not. The designated hitter spot is an option, so no team is required to use a DH although every American League team does have one.
