David Ross Is Coming Back To Play Baseball


Had enough of David Ross? Well, too bad because he’s coming back to play baseball.

On Saturday, former Chicago White Sox player Adam LaRoche actually broke the news. Ross, who helped the Chicago Cubs win the 2016 World Series, will be making a return to the baseball diamond. Don’t get your hopes up too high, though, as Ross was added to the Kansas Stars roster, not the Cubs.

Here’s the Facebook post that broke the news on the addition of Ross to the Kansas Stars.

The Wichita Eagle also reported the Ross addition to the Kansas squad.

David Ross, who last fall helped the Chicago Cubs win their first championship since 1908, was added to the roster on Saturday according to a team source. Ross, 40, homered in the Cubs’ Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians last November before retiring.

You’ve never heard of the Kansas Stars? Neither did I, but after a quick Google search I found out it’s one of the teams that plays in the National Baseball Congress World Series. The Kansas Stars were established last year, with ex-MLB players like Roger Clemens, Ben Sheets, Nate Robertson, Dan Uggla, J.D. Drew and Jason Marquis just to name a few. Basically what Ice Cube’s Big3 is to former NBA players is what this Kansas Stars team is for former MLB players.

The National Baseball Congress itself is an organization based in Wichita, Kansas, made up of 17 amateur and semi-amateur teams that’s been running since 1934.

Anyway, as the Facebook post above says, Ross will be on the field on July 29, for the NBC World Series.

The funny part is that this is supposed to be a fun league for college players to play in the summer and now you have guys like Roger Clemens trying to relive their glory days and if it’s Clemens, he’s probably throwing at your head.

Well, good luck Ross, at least you won’t be the oldest player on the team. You can see the entire roster for the Kansas Starts in the link below.
