Is pitching more important than batting?
Baseball is an odd sport in that the defensive team has the only opportunity to score points. The pitcher has the single most important offensive position in the game. If the pitcher does not succeed in his goal of getting the ball past the batter, then the other members of the offense must "take up the slack." However, the defensive batter has the only position that can score. If you are in the dugout, then the most important player to you is the batter. If you are in the field, then the most important player is the pitcher. If you have a bat in your hand, then you better be sure the most important player is you.

How important is each position on a baseball field?
Each position is very important on the field. The short stop is most important because most balls are hit toward them so that position should contain the most intelligent and best player. All the players should be able to catch, throw, and all the other obvious ways just in case the ball is hit to them. There is any chance the ball will go everywhere so make sure you have good players in all positions at all times.
