A ball or a balloon?

Balloons are not launched at a high speed, and have appreciable aerodynamic drag and buoyancy.

You probably mean "ball"

60 mph is 88 ft/s or 26.8 m/s

An object launched at A degrees and velocity V travels

(2V^2/g) * sinAcosA

That formula will give you the answer in meters if you use V = 26.8 m/s, a = 38 degrees and g = 9.8 m/s^2
