For several months now, the debate has been present as to whether the Major League Baseball (MLB) should already implement the use of the designated hitter (DH) in both the American League and the National League. Brian Snitker, manager of the Atlanta Braves, recently stated that he agrees with the existence of the designated universall, as it would make watching baseball “more fun.”
Brian Snitker, a thousand-battle veteran, gave his opinion on whether MLB will introduce the universal designated hitter starting in the 2022 season as one of the changes to the game system.
The Atlanta Braves manager said “it will be a more entertaining game to watch” if the American League and the National League have a man specialized in hitting within their line up and that pitchers are no longer used.
The use of the designated hitter in both leagues has been a debate that has deepened over the years, since there are those who are against and those who are in favor, arguing that it opens up job opportunities for players.
In December of this year the agreement between the MLB and the Baseball Players Association will come to an end and precisely the issue of the universal designated is one of those that are on the table to be discussed.
