This discussion came up last night and there are two camps. The middle infield camp. And the center field camp. As a coworker says, “Short stops are the best all around athletes, but center fielders are the fastest. Because they have to cover the most ground.” In favor of the center fielders is this season’s stolen bases statistics. Anyway, the floor is open. Which position is fastest? How should we define fastest? Is there any reasonable way of quantitatively answering the question as you define it?
What’s the fastest position in baseball?
