"Learning How To Catch"

 A good rule of thumb,
Whether you're short or tall...
Is to stay "heads-up",
And keep your eye on the ball!
Give your partner a target,
your hands in front of your chest...
Keep the glove wide-open,
Cuz that's how it works best!
Receive the ball with "soft" hands,
It's sorta like catching an egg...
If you're in good position,
It won't hit you in the leg!
You should expect a bad throw,
So stay on the balls of your feet...
Your hands should be together,
as you watch the ball and glove meet!
Once you get the hang of it,
The fun is hard to match...
So always use two hands,
When Learning How To Catch!
