Outfielder

Sport: Baseball

In baseball, there are nine positions in which the defense team plays. Three of these positions are situated in the outfield. These three roles are of the left fielder, right fielder and the center fielder. These players are based outside of the diamond, in the grassy area of the field. They are the players that are furthest from the batter. 

What do Outfielders do?

Outfielders are a defensive position which are used to catch balls. Of these balls, the most common ones to reach the outfield are fly balls and ground balls. Outfielders often pass the balls back to the men on bases, who then attempt to tag out any base runners that may be attempting a run.
