Well when you use the set_servo_position function, the servo will stay stationary in that position (and hold onto a ball without dropping it) as long as you don't disable_servos. So measure the position that you need to hold on to the ball (use the servo test on the CBC) and put that into your set_servo_position function and you should be good to go.
