Could you help me with this problem?

A major-league catcher gloves a 92 mi/h pitch and brings it to rest in 0.15 m. If the force exerted by the catcher is 803 N, what is the mass of the ball?

Worked done on catcher = F*d, assuming constant force
Work done on catcher = KE of motion of ball = 1/2mv^2
Fd = 1/2m*v^2
m = 2Fd/v^2
v = 41.12768 m/s
F = 803 N
d = 0.15
m = 0.142 kg
