My tomato plants are loaded with fruit and blooms, but the tomatoes are not getting large enough before turning red. They are about tennis ball sized.

Unless it's a Beefsteak variety that's supposed to be very large, that sounds about right to me! If it's been a good season and the plants have been taken care of (and if they've produced a lot of fruit they probably have) then it's most likely just the size of the variety you're growing. I've had tomatoes fail to get very big in bad conditions, but they were usually pretty small and didn't ripen.
