Fielding: When fielding a groundball what are some tips that I need to remember?

Treat the baseball like an egg, meaning stay "soft" with your hands. Try to field the baseball like an airplane by moving into fielding position smoothly, not like a helicopter by dropping into fielding position.

Field the baseball on the inside part of your left leg which will help you to come through the ball moving toward the base you are going to be throwing to.

Did you know that many pro infielders count how many hops the baseball takes off of the bat as the baseball comes toward them. This helps them react to the baseball instead of trying to get that perfect hop, which can cause you to get the bad hop!
