Modified the Role of the Defensive Player and the Designated Hitter (3-1-4) — Modifying the role of the defensive player and the designated hitter will assist coaches to strategize how to keep their better players in the game to contribute to the offensive output of the team and give another player a chance to participate on defense. In addition, considering the pitch-count rules, this change will help pitchers (who are typically some of the better hitters) contribute offensively in the game, but still allow them to come out of the game to protect their arms from overuse.
