10 Best Moments Of David Ross’ Cubs Career


6.The Walk-Off Pick off

One of Ross’ biggest strengths on the field was keeping base runners guessing during their time on the base paths. His arm has always been strong throughout his career and he’s always found ways to bail his team out of tight spots by picking off runners throughout the game. He threw out three runners in Milwaukee in May of 2016, he kept the Dodgers base runners quiet when Jon Lester was on the mound in the 2016 NLCS, and he was the one responsible for throwing the ball to the wizard, Javier Baez, to gun down would be base stealers during the 2016 NLDS.

My favorite Ross pick off moment however, comes from 2015 when he completed the very rare “walk-off pick off” against the Washington Nationals.

A 2-1 game, with two outs, in the bottom of the ninth and you get caught straying off first base?

You need to be fired Clint Robinson.
