Is it moving? 'Coming out' is movement. 'is' is a positional verb.
not sure it makes a difference, but let's say it's moving

The answer is that the ball is both "out" but also only "coming out" depending on what happens next. It's a Schrodinger ball

6 comes round and picks it up .. that's OK because it's out
6 comes round and dives on it ... that's not OK because it was merely "coming out"

What if 6 asks "Is the ball out?" "Well..."
