You may not make a bonus action attack against the ball. You may, however, sneak attack it, but since you don't have advantage or an ally near you, it doesn't factor in here. You still beat Helerie's roll.
In the future, I'd like people to specify where they are sending the ball(n, ne, e, se, s, sw, w, nw), I forgot to say that earlier. Please tell me where Ballgoosesmack is sending the ball.

((Apologies, a couple of questions whilst I get to grips with the game rules as we go:
1. Ok, so the ball went through my space, with 7 momentum points remaining? (Started with 12, moved 5 to get to me?) So if I want to hit it as it comes past me, I'd need to roll 15 to hit (AC 8 + 7 momentum points?), and if I miss I'd take 14 points of damage. Is that right? If so, I'm going to let it past me. (Really just wanting to double-check I've got the game mechanics right)
2. Is there any merit to holding/readying my action? I.e. I can't get to the ball with my movement, but Hjalman is next up. Could I wait for Hjalman to hit the ball in my direction and try to hit it on from there? I know that just the normal reaction rule for when the ball passes through your space would allow me to do it, but would readying an attack in anticipation gain any advantage?))
Either way, Grum is going to move to G20 and wait, hoping for the ball to be hit back to/pasthim (and will react accordingly at that point, depending on the DM ruling on Q2).
((Ok, great. I was stood in G18 though, right? I just assumed the ball was going through the G column? So does that mean that if I stand in F20, and it passes through G20, and I've got my attack readied, I can attack it without risk of being hit by it? Or would I still risk it hitting me if I try to hit a moving ball? Sorry again for all the questions, just trying to get my head around stuff!))
By my calculations that just reaches me. Rather than have to wait due to time zones for DM confirmation, then wait for me to post again, I'll go ahead and use my attack, and if I'm wrong and it hasn't reached G20, just ignore this post!
