    Pinch hitter concerns...

    Post by DelThaFunkee on Mon Jul 15, 2013 1:32 am

    I know some people have been getting upset with others who call in a pinch hitter, then once the defensive player changes pitcher, the batting team changes hitters once more to counter the pitching change. Yes, this does not happen very often in real MLB, but it is legal.

    Here is a direct quote from a link here I found on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    "A pinch hitter may be substituted by another pinch hitter before his turn at bat is completed, for example if the opposing manager reacts to the pinch hitter's announcement by changing his pitcher. Both players are listed as pinch hitters, and the pinch hitter who did not come to bat may not be used again in the game. There is no limit, except the size of the roster, to the number of times a manager can call for a new pinch hitter during the same at bat. Managers have been known to call for a succession of pinch hitters as a means of delaying the game or showing up the home plate umpire. Such a tactic will usually result in an ejection or a forfeit in favor of the opposing team (the latter especially if the object was to delay the game on purpose)."

    However, injuries are now on... so maybe with injuries on this will make managers think twice about using the tactic.
