David Ross will perhaps never be forgotten by Cubs fans for his home run in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, but he also won a title with the 2013 Boston Red Sox. Now he’s getting ready to start a whole new career as he’s signed on to work with ESPN as an analyst.
The 39 year old is loved by fans and teammates alike (his Cubs teammates called him Grampa Rossy) and he already has some media experience as he served as a guest analyst for ESPN during the 2014 and 2015 post seasons — season that were sandwiched in between his World Series victories.
On top of spending some time in television, Ross will also be putting his 15 years of experience to work as a special assistant for the Chicago Cubs in the baseball operations department. Combine that with the fact that ESPN was rather vague in announcing Ross’s new gig and it will be very interesting to see how he’s actually used by the network.
