The pitcher is the player who throws the baseball from the pitcher’s mound toward the catcher to begin each play, with the goal of retiring a batter, who attempts to either make contact with the pitched ball or draw a walk.


The Catcher is a position behind home plate, in front of the (home) umpire, that receives the ball from the pitcher.


The infield is composed of four positions: first base (1B), second base (2B), third base (3B) and shortstop (SS). Generally, the first three have responsibility for plays at their respective bases, although the shortstop often shares responsibility for second base with the second baseman.


An outfielder is a person playing in one of the three defensive positions farthest from the batter the left fielder, the center fielder, and the right fielder.
