NOTE: By 12U, most players are beginning to key in on set positions and finding their identities as either infielders or outfielders. Coaches should work towards allowing them to hone specific skills based on their positions but, there will still be opportunities for moving some players around if needed. At this level, outfielders will play a more important role on defense than the younger groups.
