World Series: Braves manager agrees with universal designee: “would be more entertaining”

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.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
