What are your thoughts regarding the DH in professional baseball?

  1. Leave it as it is—it’s up to each league to have it or not

  2. Do away with it—the circumstances that led to it are no longer valid

  3. It’s the right thing as a pitcher’s value is based solely on pitching

  6. It’s no good—every player should take his turn at bat or leave the game

  7. It is needed to be sure a pitcher cannot be ‘avenged’—thrown at

  9. Excuse pitcher from batting by having a batting order of 8, with no DH

    I think the recent poll about the Designated Hitter hit a foul ball with an answer misstated, and perhaps was not as complete as it might have been for validity. So here is another At Bat for that one.

    Do away with it, every player should take their turn at bat or leave the game and it takes away a lot of the strategy.

    You are absoutely right, I was in a rush to complete the poll and I "saved" it without properly checking it out. :BangHead:
