This Week In Baseball History

Jan 9, 2019

It's been controversial ever since it was proposed...way back in the 19th century. But 45 years ago this week, the American League won the right to replace the pitcher with a designated pinch hitter who would take his place. Mike and Bill trace the various proposals that failed, as well as the one that finally succeeded, and how the DH has evolved since 1973. Plus, happy birthday to Don Gullett and Randy Jones!
