Best Answer

Short stop and third base are probably the most difficult, excluding the pitcher and catcher. The shortstop gets the most action and has the most ground to cover, while the third baseman has the hot corner. This is where many very hard hit balls are hit.

What is the 10 position or the short-fielder for in softball?

It is an extra outfielder. Normally, you assign a "right-center" and "left-center", but some teams use a "rover" that plays 10-20 feet outside the infield on the "pull" side of the hitter. For example, a deep short stop for a right handed batter. In my estimation, a shortfielder makes softball, as its name implies, soft. Why should it require 10 "men" to do job that 9 do in baseball when a hardball is hit much farther and harder than a softball? There's also the fact that a hardball field (when enclosed by a fence) is usually larger with wider gaps in the outfield than a softball field. The answer to MY question is obvious; softball is usually played by slower, older and less capable athletes, Eddie Fayner, or however you spell his name, not withstanding.
