Cubs’ David Ross goes out with a bomb—and a World Series title | Chicago Sun-Times

When he took the pitch off his mask and stumbled around, I thought he had suffered a concussion. It was surprising when they didn’t come out to check on him. Then he hit a home run.

Unbelievable.

“Win a World Series in your last year when you know you’re going out and you’re a backup catcher,’’ Ross said, “and these guys treat me the way they do and the city shows me the love it has shown me and you’re a part of one of the greatest games in the history of baseball and breaking the longest curse in all of baseball, what words do you have for that? It’s so emotional.’’

Hardly a Hard Day’s Night for the Cubs on Beatles Night at Dodger Stadium - Chicago Tribune

Joe Maddon and David Ross visited Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully in his TV booth before Friday’s game to wish him well and give him some going away gifts.

Among the presents was the numbers 6 and 7 from the Wrigley Field scoreboard, and a variety of T-shirts from the vintage Maddon collection, including the ubiquitous “Try Not To Suck” T.

Was Maddon hoping the legendary Scully would say “try not to suck” on the air for perhaps the first time in his career?

“It would definitely put a spike in the sales,” Maddon said.

After thinking about it for a second, Maddon decided such language was “not in (Scully’s) bailiwick.”

No matter.
