Happy Birthday David Ross! The Top-10 Moments of His Cubs Career

Chicago Cubs

David Ross’ managerial career has gotten off to an unscriptable start. His first offseason was tortured by non-stop rumors of trading away his best players (guilty as charged), his first Spring Training games were missed because of the flu, and his first big league season is delayed by a total global pandemic.

BUT … I still believe in the guy.

And, guess what? Today is his birthday! And for his birthday, the Chicago Cubs have released the top-10 David Ross moments, of which there are MANY. Sit back and enjoy:
