Former Cubs Catcher David Ross Transitions to Broadcasting

As an admissions ambassador at New York University, business student Cameron Deahl gives tours to prospective students and their families. A native of Chicago, Cameron Deahl is a lifelong fan of Major League Baseball's (MLB) Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs won its first World Series in over 100 years last season, and 39-year-old backup catcher David Ross played a surprisingly instrumental role, recording four hits and two home runs in 20 plate appearances. Less than seven months later, Ross, now retired from baseball, worked as an analyst for ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball broadcast of the game between the Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals on June 4. Along with Dan Shulman and Aaron Boone, Ross worked the game from Wrigley Field's bleachers and had some fun with his former teammates. Between innings, Jason Heyward played catch with Ross from his position in right field.

Ross made his debut as an analyst for ESPN in May, completing a whirlwind year for the former Cubs fan favorite. Since retiring, he finished second in Dancing with the Stars, authored a New York Times Bestseller, and launched his own brand of cereal.
