Softball positions include both infield and outfield players. In some instances, nine players assume active duty. Some games require a ten-player team. Let's wind up and take a swing at each position and its responsibilities.
Six players occupy the infield.
Outfield Softball Positions
Either three or four outfielders position themselves in the grassy outfield. The duties for each are the same: retrieve and catch fly balls, line drives, and ground balls hit into the outfield. Outfielders need strong throwing arms
Remember to call for fly balls and back up teammates if you are assigned to one of these softball positions.
Knowing each player's responsibilities and putting some time in at the batting cage will help keep the game moving smoothly.
