First off, all of the positions on the field are very important. Obviously, you need a pitcher, and a catcher really helps speed the game up too. It's not very common for a player to get an infield single, and the reason is, that there are 5 other players able to field the ball, and throw the runner out before he gets to first base. Now, without a first basemen there, getting on base would be much much easier.

Positions one and two are the pitcher and catcher. 3 is the first baseman, 4 is the second baseman, 5 is the 3rd baseman and 6 is the shortstop. In the outfield, 7 is left-field, 8 is center-field, and 9 is right-field.
