Depends on some definitions.

  • The defense can position 7 of its players where they want in fair territory, so they can all be in the infield
  • If you count the pitcher's mound and the catcher's position as part of the infield, that's all 9 defensive players
  • If you count the offensive team as well:
    • There can be up to 3 runners on base
    • If you count the hitter, that's a 4th offensive players
    • If the 1st and 3rd base coaches are player-coaches, and you count the coaching boxes as part of the infield, that's another 2

So the most expansive definitions gets you to 15. 16 in a softball league that allows 10 defensive players.
