David Ross became an instant fan favorite during his time with the Cubs. His contribution and antics will forever be adored amongst Cubs fans, but his latest move allows Ross to have his own say in his legacy.
That’s because he’s publishing a book!
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Ross is teaming up with best-selling author Don Yaeger to write a book framed around Game 7 of the World Series, the final game of Ross’ career.
The book is titled Teammate: My Life in Baseball and will be published by Hachette Books on May 9, 2017.
Ross told Rosenthal,
“I was taking some notes in spring training, keeping my own diary, just on the way people feel, things that stood out for me during the year. A couple of people had said, ‘Hey, you should write a book.’”
Although he was on the fence about the decision, it was a moment after Game 7 that sealed the deal for him. In classic Ross fashion, he said, “A backup catcher getting carried off the field in the World Series — that put the icing on the cake.”
