Is playing an additional player from the outfield in a shift infield scheme legal? Example. With runner in 1B the 3B and SS are played significantly in to defend Slapper. CF moves into SS position and shaded towards second to cover the bag on a steal. While gimicky, is it also illegal or not?

8 between the white lines and one in foul territory behind the plate. Where you have them is up to you.

It is legal to move the CF into the infield.
6.1.A The pitcher must be on the pitcher's plate 6.2.A The catcher must be in the catcher's box All other players must be in fair territory. There are no requirements as to the number of infielders or outfielders.4htua
