I thought Donnie might need some help, so I consulted the Internet. I found the following from ehow.com
1. Decide what player is most likely to hit for a base hit. This doesn’t mean a power hitter but just someone who has the best average of making a hit. Write this player’s name in the number one spot. To the right of the player’s name write in the position he is playing. The position is shortened into two letters, such as 1B for first base, LF for left field and SS for short stop.
2. Write in the second and third batters directly under the first. These players are also likely to make it on base but you also want these players to be fast. This is because they are likely to steal a base to make their way into scoring position.
3. Determine what player has the most power on your team (the individual must likely to hit a home run). Position this individual in the number four spot. This is because if the first three players got on base you are more likely to obtain four runs from a home run (instead of one or two if you moved him further up in the lineup). The fifth batter also has a good amount of power and write in this player on the five spot.
4. Fill in the remaining four players in the six through nine spot. Typically the lower the chances of each individual reaching base, the lower the spot in the batting order. This is because the further you are in the batting order the fewer times you are going to bat each game.
