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.

Why do you have to be quicker in softball?

Softball has a smaller field. Distances between bases in baseball is 90ft while in softball it's only 60 ft. The strength of the players don't change in softball even though the field is smaller. so imagine how quick a throw to first would be since everything is shorter. Imagine the speed of the ball coming at you from a shorter pitching distance and imagine how fast a batted ball would come to a fielder every time there is a hit. So every movement from base running, fielding and batting should be quicker

What is it scored as if a batter attempts a sac bunt with men on first and second and the fielder tries to get out the lead runner and everyone is safe with no error?

Its Fielders choice, and an infield hit. An error can be recorded if the play could have been executed but was not due to a bad throw or other circumstance. If no error occurs, it is a Fielder's Choice, however, if, in the Official Scorers judgement, the batter would have been retired with normal effort, the batter should be credited with a Sacrifice Hit. If, in the scorers judgement, the runner would have beat the throw to first with normal effort by the fielder, he should be credited with a hit, otherwise, no hit should be credited to the batter. Under normal circumstances, in the question as stated, it should be recorded as a Fielders Choice and Sacrifice (officially called a Sacrifice Hit) by the batter.
