If you catch a baseball how long do you have to hold it to make it a fly ball?

Long enough for the fielder to demonstrate to the official(s) that he has control of the ball. If he drops it 'during the course of fielding' it's deemed not a catch. If it is deemed, by the ump, to be dropped in the transfer from glove to throwing motion you won't have held it very long, but it is a judgement call and may go against you. The same for catching a fly ball, its upto the ump.
