I've done a few 12U rec league games where the house rules limit the number of fielders on the dirt. So you may want to check if your league has a similar restriction.

Otherwise, you're outta luck. If you're talking Little League, rule 4.03 states that fielders other than the pitcher and catcher may be stationed anywhere in fair territory, as Mike mentioned.
