    DH rule could flip-flop for interleague games
    By Hal Bodley, USA TODAY

    Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig favors reversing use of the designated hitter for interleague games next season.

    Under Selig's proposal, which will be considered during the offseason, the DH would be used in National League parks instead of in American League stadiums.

    The DH, adopted in 1973 by the AL, is used by NL teams only when they play in American League parks - in the World Series, All-Star Games and interleague contests.

    Sometimes I would like to see the DH all the time, sometimes none of the time.

    This 32-year difference between leagues should be resoved one way or another.

    If I had to make a choice I would go back to requiring the pitcher to bat.

    I wonder what the pitchers themselves felt in 1973, and what they feel now.
