Annoying Physics Question, Plz Help

Quote Quote by khanites
I am having trouble understanding why when sitting in a car, and a tennis ball is thrown up that you do not go in front of it and why the tennis ball returns back perfectly to your hand without you having to adjust to the fact that you have moved forward and not the ball.
You are not just throwing the ball up, you are throwing the ball up and forward. (with respect to the ground)
