The story of the 2016 Chicago Cubs is going to be shared by generations of fans, but one of the players with inside knowledge of how the team won the World Series is writing a book about his experiences in the game.
That player is catcher David Ross, who retired from baseball following the Cubs’ championship. Throughout his final season, Ross received accolades and gifts from around the game, and now he’s giving fans a gift of their own as he will release a memoir about his time in the big leagues.
The book, titled “Teammate: My Life in Baseball,” will be available in May 2017, and is already available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and many other sites.
“An inspiring memoir from David Ross, the veteran catcher dubbed “Granpda Rossy,” who became the heart and soul of the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series championship team,” the promo blurb reads.
Ross played a key role for the Cubs during the postseason, catching for Jon Lester in three different games in the World Series and even hitting a home run in Game 7 of the Cubs’ win over the Cleveland Indians.
