i am going to venture to say, if you have to use three, and not two, that something along the lines of a baseball, but you would have to figure it out a little more than that

a baseball is made out of two pieces that are ALL curves, and that is what makes it more stable than a round ball, which usually is done with between three and six lozenges with chopped off tips sewn/glued to two round things at top and bottom. With three pieces, I think it gets more complicated. The easiest way to get a sphere is to do four triangles, with curved sides, but the points where they meet will be funky. So i am going to guess something like a baseball, two "Y" shaped pieces, and one round piece. Or maybe three "Y" shaped pieces, but i am not sure how to do it exactly. The other thing to try would be to make something like this (__) and two small spheres for top and bottom, glueing together the ends of the parentheses, and glueing the underscore to the spheres.
