Catching a flyball in the infield is no different than catching one in the outfield. The infielder should catch the ball in proper hand position with a strong wrist stacked on top of the elbow. Like the outfielder, an infielder must show the ability to field all types of flyballs - line drives, pop-ups, and flares. The key to catching any flyball is to get behind the baseball and work in while catching the ball in the air. Infielders should practice balls in the air as much as an outfielder practices catching the ball on the ground - the ratio should be around 60/40.
