[from Joe Hornung, from a series on the various positions] To handle a low hit or ground ball get well in front of it, and just before it reaches you place your heels together, hold your hands apart, about knee-high. Watch the ball closely, and when it reaches you bring your hands together in front of the ball. Should it happen to pass your hands it will be stopped by your feet. Should it bound, your hands are ready to receive it. By a little practice these features are easily acquired.
