FED: MN Rule experiment: pitcher/DH

The NCAA rule came about because of a rule change requested by the late John Winkin, coach of the University of Maine. Coach Winkin had a great pitcher, Billy Swift, who was also an excellent hitter. Maine would have been well served if Billy could be the DH on the days he pitched. The NCAA accepted Dr. Winkin's suggested rule change for the DH at the college level.
