1- is the Pitcher
2- Catcher
3- 1B
4- 2B
5- 3B
6- SS
7- LF
8- CF
9- RF

They do this so you could put the numbers on the scorecard instead of their names.

So then, I forgot to add, a 1-4-3 DP means it's probably a comebacker with the pitcher getting the ball and tossing it to the 2B who steps on the bag for the first out then throwing the ball to the 1B for the second out.

Yup. Hence the 1(P) - 4(2B) - 3(1B) DP. Wait until you see the 1-6-3 putout (for 1 out). 8-o

As a slow pitch softball pitcher going against guys with Miken bats and the like, I guard the teeth first and then try to field it next. Sometimes, all that I can do is "slow" it down for the shortstop.
