In my opinion, have something that is approximately ball-shaped for it to be trapped in.

...and something to scoop it up from underneath. getting it from above seems way hard.

or put lead in the track balls and attach a high powered magnet!

My team is using large flippers with rollers and a pair of upright with rollers on the front of the bot for herding... As for actually PICKING UP the ball..... If I told you, I'd have to kill you... haha jk

In my opinion, have something that is approximately ball-shaped for it to be trapped in.

but if it was ball shaped... it would go over the 80", we built a strap that did pick it up easily, then we remembered the rule and had to scrap it. so now we have a three point claw that works.

and, going on top of it isn't that hard... its just having the right motor to be able to pick it up.
