What is the proper way to go after a fly ball?

Get Sideways

When moving to field a fly ball, remember the words 'Get Sideways.' By doing a drop step and remaining sideways on your approach, you will have a much better chance to field the ball cleanly. 'Getting Sideways' helps you avoid backpedalling, which often gets you in the most trouble.
