When kids first pick up a glove and cap and head to the ballfield, we want them to play anywhere and everywere. In fact, WebBall has a section for coaches called 'Grass Roots' which is all about that - the basics of each position, plus we offer other insights on how to move players around to give everyone equal experience in every spot on the field.
But there comes a time, when some players (if not all) gravitate to preferred positions - either because it's what they like to do, or it's where - because of physicality and mental make-up - they will do best.
What you need to know for...
The 'Playing' section breaks down the fielding and run-production roles by position (you can also reach them by clicking the dots upper left). We also recommend you check out 'Training' for help in getting into your best playing shape, and 'Scouting' to know what will be expected of you - in time.

For All Players
These pages could help you improve both your performance and your participation no matter where on the field you play.
There are also many other pages on WebBall - under Coaching, Training & Scouting for players.
As you prepare for Evaluation Day or Tryout Camp (same thing, different name) follow the steps on these pages. They may help you approach the process with a positive attitude and show yourself in a good light. For more tips on getting scouted, start here.
