10 Best Moments Of David Ross’ Cubs Career


3. 100th Career Home Run

On May 26, 2016, Ross reached the century mark in homers, launching a three-run blast in the fourth inning to help the Cubs beat the Phillies, 6-2.

Ross began 2016 with 96 ding dongs and the rest of the team were counting down after each home run he hit before he got to the finish line. Even though he’s a 15-year vet, the excitement of hitting 100 still got to him.

“My favorite part while this has been going on is rounding second base and looking in the dugout. It makes me smile every time seeing everybody so happy for me and counting down for me. They’re as happy as I am. That makes me feel good.”

What’s even funnier is the fact that home run number one came off former Cubs great Mark Grace during his time with the Diamondbacks.

Ross added two more home runs in the post season to finish his career at 102.
