For score-keeping purposes, every defensive position is assigned a number. This number has nothing to do with the number on the back of a player's uniform. The scoring numbers are: 1 -- pitcher 2 -- catcher 3 -- first base 4 -- second base 5 -- third base 6 -- shortstop 7 -- left field 8 -- center field 9 -- right field so a scoredcard reading, for example, "E-6", would mean an error on the shortstop.
