The Sports Ethicist Show airs tonight at 6 pm (Central) on Rockford College Radio.
The Designated Hitter Rule in MLB has been in place for 40 years, yet still remains as controversial as ever. Does it remove the need for managerial strategy? Does it add excitement and offense to the game? The Sports Ethicist brings in Rockford College Baseball players, Zachary Wolf and Daryn Streed, as well as Professors Matt Flamm and Mike Perry to discuss the DH rule and its effects on baseball.
