Infielder
An infielder is a baseball player stationed at one of four defensive "infield" positions on the baseball field.Contents1 Standard arrangement of positions 2 Positions 3 Roles3.1 Middle infielders 3.2 Corner infieldersStandard arrangement of positions[edit] In a game of baseball, two teams of nine players take turns playing offensive and defensive roles.

The team playing in the field tries to prevent runs by catching the ball before it hits the ground, by tagging runners with the ball while they are not touching a base, or by throwing the ball to first base before the batter who hit the ball can run from home plate to first base. There are nine defensive positions on a baseball field
