You don't need CFD for that, just use kinematics equations.

The part you could use Fluent for would be to model the air flow around the ball. The solutions to the air flow could be used to create drag correlations and lift correlations and the like. Then those drag and lift correlations could be used in the kinematic equations to predict the trajectory.

If the drag and lift correlations that you have now are accurate enough for your application, then you don't need CFD software.
