David Ross

He also threw out a runner on a steal attempt. That's not an easy thing to do with a pitcher that won't hold runners close to 1st.

While Ross was doing a post-game interview, first his manager interrupted to give him a big hug, then his teammates came, lifted him up on their shoulders and ran around the infield with him, ending the interview. In addition to getting some clutch hits, Ross, at age 39, must have been a clubhouse and team leader. Sort of "the glue that holds them together" and a good role model for the younger guys. Even with his clutch hits, you don't often see a part-time player get the response that Ross got in the post-game. They all have a lot of respect for him.

During the game, they had him miked and Rizzo came up to him to talk about how nervous he was. I'm guessing the same as you, he was the team leader and the one who kept them steady during their run.

Backup catcher emeritus David Ross of course retired from baseball following the 2016 season -- a season that saw him win the World Series as a member of the Cubs. The athlete, though, is very often a restive soul, and it didn’t take Ross long before he decided full retirement didn’t suit him.

What does suit him, however, are the righteous threads of the Harlem Globetrotters ... 

Yep, that’s David Ross, playground legend. As the man says, he’ll be suiting up with the Harlem Globetrotters in a matter of days. While we don’t normally think of catchers who are pushing age 40 as ballers and/or shot-callers, David “Streets of Fire” Ross is here to posterize your assumptions. 

Look at that J. As smooth as velvet melted in a fondue pot is what that is.
