First MLB Designated hitter

Recorded: Saturday, August 18, 2018


A Mint Pros Stadium Suite Event:






:15 What is it like to be here today with Mint Pros to meet the fans in this suite?

:57 Being the first DH: how and when did the idea of a DH originate? 

2:00 When it first started, were opponents thinking it was an unfair competitive advantage?

2:46 Because of a DH, is it easier to pitch in the NL vs. in the AL?

4:58 Changes may be coming: do you adopt a DH in NL, do you switch to a pitcher/batter in AL, or keep it the way it is?

5:56 How soon do you think your suggestion will be enacted?
