Best Answer

The Shortstop, or any other defensive player, except the catcher and the pitcher, may take up their position anywhere on the field as long as it is in fair territory. The players usually play in their tradition spots, i. e., the SS between 2nd base and 3rd base, because through the years of playing the game it has been determined that those traditional spots are the best way to defend the offense.
