Hey David.

Speaking of quickly finding the ball & always knowing where it is, I coach  in Springfield, Mo. in our summer college league & in our High school fall league.

Our team had a runner on second, the ball popped up to short right  I'm coaching 3rd. the ball was hit [on contact] the runner on 2nd. comes barreling down towards me, this an adult with high school and college play exp.I didn't have time to be of much help to him, he got caught half way between 3rd. & home then he hollered at me, needless to say from then on I vociferously made sure that everyone heard me remind them to find the ball in order that they could act accordingly a

I am a strict team and individual skills fundamentalist  these kids do not understand half of what I talk to them about because their coaches have not dug near as deep into baseball as I have and still do, especially since the American Sports Medicine Institute and their  counter members have exposed their scientific findings to the baseball world  in general which means that all coaches etc certainly do need to lay their opinions and conventional side of the game aside & learn to teach what scientific pitching findings have brought to the table as to how the body works throughout it's full throwing movement, in reverse as to how the body visibly looks like it generally operates during it's throwing movement, the naked eye  cannot pick up what is necessary to see. The body's pitching movement from start to finish is a closed body position to front foot touch down with a stride length of at least matching one's body height at this point the hips rotate/lead the way which creates [ HIP, SHOULDER SEPARATION] then the shoulders simultaneously rotate creating a sequenced, hip, shoulder chain reaction movement then bringing the arm with ball in hand on into an upper body mouse trap movement on to it's release point on to a  flat back fielding position.

I asked one of our umps last year and he said that if it hits the ground first, then it's legal.  He said you can't let it hit your glove and then bounce out.
