Best Answer

Whatever kind of ball played, it is important for the fielder to always stay in front of the ball and must keep the ball at the center of the body. For ground balls, keep low and for fly balls be sure to be under the ball. Always cover the ball with your free hand as soon as it enters the gloves

What's the ruling if the defensive player kicks a batted ball in play purposely to keep the runner from advancing a base?

There would be no advantage to a fielder kicking a batted ball. If a ball is in fair territory when touched by a fielder, it will remain a fair ball until play is stopped. If a ball is in play when touched by a fielder in any way, it remains in play.
