Best Answer

The infield positions in softball are the same as in Baseball.... pitcher, catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd base and shortstop. One difference in their positioning in comparison to baseball is that the 3rd base player and often the 1st base player, play in front of the base, closer to home plate. This is due to the greater amount of bunting and slap hitting in softball.
