AL assigns hitter for pitcher

CHICAGO () - The American League was giv-
en permission to use the designated pinch hitter
rule for the next three years at a joint meeting of
major league baseball owners yesterday.
The Nationai League, which will not use the
experimental rule, gave its approval for the ex-
Here is an explanation of the designated pinch-
hitter baseball rule adopted by the American
"A pinch hitter may be designated to bat for the
starting pitcher and all subsequent pitchers in any
game without otherwise affecting the status of the
pitchers in the game. A designated pinch hitter for
the pitcher must be selected prior to the game and
must be included in the lineup cards presented to
the umpire-in-chief.
"A designated pinch hitter shall not take a
position in the field in any game in which he ap-
pears as a designated pinch hitter; nor shall he
appear as a pinch runner. His designation as a
pinch hitter for the pitcher limits him to that task

"It is not mandatory that club designate a pinch
hitter for the pitcher, but failure to designate a
pinch hitter prior to the game precludes the use
of a designated pinch hitter for that game. "Pinch
hitters for a designated pinch hitter may be used.
Any substitute pinch hitter for a designated pinch
hitter himself becomes a designated pinch hitter.
A replaced designated pinch hitter shall not re-
enter the game in any capacity.
"Except for designated pinch hitters, all other
pinch hitters, and those for whom they hit, will
be governed by the adopted official playing rules."
The two leagues also announced the appoint-
ment of a major league committee to study and
review aspects of inter-league play. Commissioner
Bowie Kuhn, who presided at the joint meeting,
said he hoped the committee studying inter-league
play, would have a report in advance of next Au-
gust's major league meetings.
The designated pinch-hitter rule will not apply
in All-Star, World Series or exhibition games be-
tween the two leagues.
