Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example that reproduces the problem. I can't see anything wrong in the fragment you have posted.

comment Why won't ball show up? \ball is undefined control sequence
There is no \begin{block} to go with \end{block}. If you remove all the irrelevant material from your code, the error is easy to find.

comment right bind when using align
A dirty trick is to use \hspace{1000pt} and then check the size of the resulting overfull hbox in the log file. If it's overfull by n points, change 1000 to 1000 - n.
