Always get to a stain as soon as possible. If it's been in the dryer....you may be stuck with the stain.
Aerosol hairspray breaks up ballpoint ink very well.
I can't think of the name of the product line, but it's in the laundry aisle (oddly enough) and comes in tubes about 3" high. They're specifically formulated stain removal products, and I've found the ink ones to be very effective. If nobody else can supply the name, I'll check when I get home from work for you.
