I think I missed a post in here. What is this in reply?

Anyway, I get a total of 2142 DH games for AL and 132 for NL.

Sanity check: there are 9 (I think) games each AL team doesn't play in
an AL park. So, 153*14= 2142

Maybe I only have the "starts" for DH, and not the PH/DH games? I'll
check.

• The totals I reported were both from a separate source and the BDB. When I check Retrosheet, I get a total of 2268 DH games, which compares to the 2142+132 =
