Lots of different opinions on this, and a lot has to do too with the size of the hermies:

We had one during our first year of crabbing.... the hermies could not move it about that well and we felf sorry for them so ended up throwing the hamster balls away. Our baby pools give them a lot more freedom.

I put a hermie in a hamster ball once and it wasn't what I expected. It would be better with a hermie play pen like Marie's baby pool. I bet you could find a baby pool free in the summer and just clean it out really well. It cost less than a $6 hamster ball at retail stores. :)

Maybe someone else will be giving one away and you can get another one free!
