Why wont my outfielders stop and catch the ball? Am I supposed to let him lock into the circle?

I've noticed this happening a lot when the fly ball is near a wall. The fielder will essentially try to run and touch the wall first, and ignore the fly ball.

That's Exactly what it is. I mean he literally ran in circles but it kept forcing me towards the wall.

That's the new "lost it in the lights" feature

I wish I had the solution, man. My only guess is maybe try to slow down so you'll catch it on the run? There's no way it's fielder's-rating based; it's happened to Andruw Jones multiple times.

I would assume your outfielders actual fielding rating has to do with that. If it's low like Nelson Cruz, then it will mod the system to make you purposely miss it even though you are right there in the circle with plenty of time. So an outfileder with a higher fielding rating will prevent that. I'm seein the same with 2B & SS not handling bad hops as well when they have lower fielding ratings. But even if I use guys with high ratings, my prob is that I myself react to quickly & tend to run right past the path of that grounder if in the infield or run past the line of that fly ball if in the outfield. but thats my own fault for being so quick & aggressive on the play itself & not being able to stop in time. But all other stuff that should be handled no matter what I feel its the game modding errors on purpose due to the low fielding rating of that player.
