I did some research into ball tracking for sports just before the pandemic and 
ran across some motorized face tracking cameras with PTZ (pan,tilt,zoom). Don't 
know the quality of them though.

I would go to Amazon and search for:
or similar

Not that I have tested "OBSBOT Tiny AI Webcam" but it looks cool. About $200 on 

I also found a nice project with RPi. But I needed something more ready made. 
Anyway, here it is.

Fun video that should keep me from doing the sports project.
"A.I Camera Follows Bald Linesman Instead a Ball"
