Machinists; how to hold a ball in a milling machine?

All joking aside...

Last year I bought a clear acrylic ball to drill for a Phantom pump handle ala pool ball pump. I might actually get around to doing it this winter lol.

I've having a devil of a time trying to figure out a good way to hold the ball, without marking it all up. Once I got that part, the rest is cake.

Keep in mind I have to hold it in such a way that I can drill it out for the barrel and thread it for the cocking rod.
If your glasses fog up and you want to make your own mask fans, here's how;
