Fonts do not have colors. Fonts just describe how all the outlines of characters should look. Type that you've created has color, and pixels have color.

In this case you have an image of type, so just pixels to change the color of.

How you change the color of those pixels depends on which application you're using. But mostly you need to select the shape that you want to change, then adjust the color. In some cases you may want to remove the type that's there, and add your own type (with warps to make it look like it fits).

In this case, I agree with Chris that the best bet for best quality would be to remove the text from the ball (using cloning/patch tool/content aware fill) and add new text using text tool with a different color over the top. Then use the text warp or the Transform>Warp tools.
