  Center fielder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A center fielder, abbreviated CF, is the outfielder in baseball who plays defense in center field - the baseball fielding position between left field and right field.
The center fielder also has the greatest responsibility among the three outfielders for coordinating their play to prevent collisions when converging on a fly ball.
Because centerfield requires a good arm and fast legs, center fielder is generally considered one of the positions which produces power hitters; many center fielders such as Torii Hunter of the Minnesota Twins are renowned as excellent batters and baserunners.

 Center fielder - BR Bullpen
The Center fielder (abbreviated CF and position 8 when scoring) is an outfielder who plays between the left fielder and the right fielder.
Like all outfielders, the center fielder may shift his position to one side or the other because of the hitting tendencies of the batter.
The center fielder is usually the captain of the outfield and makes the call of whether he or the other outfielder will make a catch when either fielder can catch a fly ball.
