How to use "Designated hitter" in context?

The designated hitter rule has been in place in Major League Baseball since 1973. The rule allows teams to bat a designated hitter instead of one of their normal players. The designated hitter is usually a veteran player who has been mostly ineffective during the regular season. The reasoning behind the designated hitter rule is that the team is able to put more talented players in the lineup who are not required to play defense.
