The Chicago Cubs’ miraculous World Series run had a lot of great subplots. One of them was veteran catcher David Ross, a.k.a. Grandpa Rossy. A veteran leader beloved by teammates and fans alike, Ross had announced prior to the playoffs that he would be retiring at the end of the season. Then he went out and hit two postseason home runs, including a solo shot off Cleveland’s ace reliever Andrew Miller in the sixth inning of Game 7. Talk about a great way to end a journeyman’s career.

I think Ross’ former Cubs teammate Anthony Rizzo said it best:

Tune in next Monday to see what David Ross has in store for us in week 4. Or maybe don’t.
