    Baseball is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball. At least it used to be that way until Ron Blomberg became the major league's first designated hitter in 1973.

Baseball team owners have notified the players' union of the possibility the DH will not exist in 1999. T...
