Here is the new DH rule from NFHS:
The change to Rule 3-1-4 now allows the starting designated hitter to also be a starting defensive player. Utilizing this option, the player has two positions: defensive player and designated hitter. The team would begin the game with nine starters -- nine defensive players -- one of whom also assumes the role of the designated hitter.
Myself and none of my coaches have ever had experience with the DH in this role. We are still having a problem seeing how this works. Anyone had experience with this?? I am a visual learner....can someone show me an example of a lineup where this would be used???
