duane: This trick takes a good deal of timing, and should be practiced in front of a mirror. It's also good to use a smaller ball, 2.5in or so. First, practice rolling a ball smoothly from the palm to a fingertip-hold and back. The trick here is to keep most of the motion in your pinky, where, from the viewing angle of the audience, is blocked by your other fingers. The timing comes in when you cover and pretend to take the ball in your other hand. There is a split-second where the ball is not seen by the audience, and this is where you roll it into your palm. Try not to close the "grabbing" hand all the way, keep it as if there were a ball in it. At the point when you "grab" the ball, roll it quickly into the palm of your hand. Keep your fingers in as close to the same position that you had them in the fingertip hold, so as to keep up the illusion.
Sidivan: In Magic this is called the "French Drop".
