Outfielders are the defensive players who stand in the outfield, or the large grassy area that is farthest from home plate.

In this tutorial we will learn about the outfielders and what their role is on the field in baseball.
As we learned in Chapter 4: Baseball Player Positions, the left fielder occupies left field (typically the left one-third segment of the outfield)
The right fielder occupies right field (the right one-third segment of the outfield).
Occasionally, the left fielder and right fielder may cross into each other's general areas if a baseball is hit in between them. In addition, sometimes the shallow outfield is covered by the infielders.
the center fielder occupies center field (the center one-third segment of the outfield).
