When you play T-Ball and Little League, you usually don't have a set position.

Sure, you might be a good fit at shortstop or the only kid on the team who doesn't hate wearing catcher's gear, but everyone still gets to—or, in some cases, has to—play pretty much everywhere.

By the time you get to pro ball, that's all changed. Your coaches might try to convert you to a new position or you might find yourself standing in an unusual spot when the benches are empty late in the game, but once you're labelled a right fielder, you're pretty much stuck in right field for life.

In this slideshow are the 20 most versatile fielders who have played in the majors over the last 10 years.

Both depth and breadth of positions were considered in making this list—a shortstop who shifted to second base wouldn't rank very high, and neither would a third baseman who played two innings of left field as a rookie—as was the actual quality of play in the field, which eliminated guys like Ty Wigginton, Fernando Tatis and Carlos Guillen.
