A team should let its best hitters and runners bat first, because they will get to bat more often during a game. Here are some tips for a strong batting order.
First Batter - Usually small and fast with a good eye. This is an excellent spot for a left handier Second Batter - A good bunter and fast runner. Third batter - Best hitter, he hits the ball often. Fourth Batter - Good hitter with men on base. Fifth batter - Long ball hitter, aggressive hitter. Sixth batter - Fairly good hitter with speed. Seventh Batter - Fairly good hitter. Eighth Batter - An inexperienced player with promise. Ninth Batter - A good fielder.
A baseball team must be strong down the middle. That means it must have a good pitcher, catcher, shortstop, second baseman, and center fielder. Next in order come the first baseman, third baseman, left fielder, and right fielder.
