keep your eye on it, so if it bobbles you can change your positon to stop it rather than it bouncing up into your face.

If you have to technique correct its quite hard to get hurt! Just ensure with ground fielding your fingers are pointing down! That was they cannot get broken when the ball lands on them!

Most of all just be confident. If you think your going to get hurt, the chances are you will. So just be confident and you will be fine. Other than that just practice, practice, practice!

Just try to focus on the ball, get yourself in the right position, and most importantly dont think it is gonna hurt you. I started telling this to my junior teammates and they started fielding better and we caught more catches.
