Fielder Basics

A fielder is any member of the current team on defense, whose responsibility is to put the offense out three times each inning – ideally before they score runs. Fielders also attempt to prevent batters from reaching first base and advancing to the next base.

This lesson will focus on all the different Fielding Positions, Possession and Put-Out rules, Automatic Out situations, the Infield Fly Rule and Fielder’s Choice.
