okay well first it depends if you are left handed or right handed. if you are right handed than you hold the ball in your left hand. you need to get your toss right so raise your right hand like your answering a question in math class. then toss the ball a little higher than your finger tips. once you have mastered that you need to know when to hit it. when it is coming down from your toss you need to hit it right when it is at the palm of your hand. you either hit the ball open handed or with your hand closed or with your fist. either one. now if you are left handed you do the same exact thing just your holding the ball with your right hand and you are tossing with your right hand and hitting with your left.

You can do it with a closed fist or a open hand. if u do it with a open hand you try to hit it with your palm. i think its easier to hit it with a closed hand
