Summary
  • Discusses the author's life and career, including his role as "Grandpa Rossy" on the Chicago Cubs 2016 championship-winning team
  • In 2016, the Cubs ended a 108-year curse, winning the World Series in a history-making, seven-game series against the Cleveland Indians. One of the many storylines to Chicago's fairytale season was the late-career renaissance of David Ross, the 39-year-old catcher who had played back-up for 13 of his 15 pro seasons. Beyond Ross's remarkably strong play, he became the ultimate positive force in the Cubs locker room, mentoring and motivating his fellow players, some of them nearly twenty years his junior. Thanks to Cubs Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, "Grandpa Rossy" became a social media sensation. No one, however, could have predicted that Ross's home run in his final career at bat would help seal the Cubs championship. Now Ross shares the story of his life in baseball, framed by the events of that unforgettable November night
