 Infielder Information
An infielder is a baseball player who plays on the infield, the dirt portion of a baseball diamond between first base and third base.
Pitchers and catchers are often considered distinct from infielders even though they play on the infield; they are sometimes described jointly as the battery.
Among infielders, shortstops are generally the best fielders, followed by second basemen, third basemen, and first basemen, respectively.

In the standard arrangement of a baseball team in the field, three players are in the distant outfield and six on the infield, the square baseball diamond (light brown in the diagram) plus a rounded region beyond it (roughly where "3B SS 2B 1B" is written in the diagram).
The infielders are the four who play along the basepaths from first base to second base to third base, namely the first baseman (1B), second baseman (2B), shortstop (SS) and third baseman (3B).
In professional play, essentially all shortstops and second and third basemen throw right-handed for greater efficiency throwing down to the lower bases where force outs are available — third basemen and shortstops throwing to second base and any of the three throwing to first base.
