Take a first step back. This is because it is harder to run backwards than forward. Judge the ball, and figure out if you are coming in on the ball or running out. If the ball is slightly behind you; You may back pedal to get under the ball. If the ball is far behind you; Turn around, and run as you normally would as fast as you can. Keep your eye on the ball, and when you are under it, turn around to make the catch. If you are coming in... Well then charge forward and catch it... The most important thing: DO NOT CATCH A BALL ON THE RUN! RUN 100% TO THE BALL AND WAIT UNDER IT! NO MATTER WHAT YOU ALWAYS have to DROP STEP!! then you judge it and decide weather to keep going back or charge. If it is a line drive then you probably want to play it safe and not dive while charging but if it is a high pop fly if you can this is your chance to make a web gem. Never run with your glove out because it will slow you down tremendously. Also if you are judging a pop fly and it is still gaining distance and it is level with your glove in the air then you probably just want to turn your hips and run. Also always catch the ball with two hands. Always call it by Saying "ball ball ball" over and over again and if one of your teamates is calling the ball say"take it take it". also if you ever have to go a different direction because you misjudged it always turn your hips inside not outside because you never want to lose sight of the ball.

Using a Great Ball is the best way. Actually a Ultra ball is the best way.
