Issue catching fly balls/pop-ups?

Usually happens when arriving at the landing spot just as the ball is coming down. I have had several instances with a player holding his glove up and the ball sailing a foot or so over the glove, what gives?

I've had this issue as well but only in one game so far, think I misjudged it

Re: Issue catching fly balls/pop-ups?

This started happening last year, or maybe even the year before. It must be intentional because they keep it in, and Ramone (the community manager) was even joking about it on the Twitch streams saying to remember to "feather the stick" every time there was a liner to an outfielder. It was probably designed to add more hits/make fielding harder.

Essentially you just need to get close then really come off the stick and lightly stride to the spot. If you go into the spot full speed on a liner this will happen fairly regularly.

Spot on. Everytime I introduce a friend to this game I have to teach them this. If you hold the stick, you will go right by the ball...
