    David Ross is a journeyman back-up catcher with respectable but unspectacular career statistics. He’s not the kind of guy who usually finds himself authoring a baseball autobiography. But he’s also indelibly etched in the hearts and minds of Cubs fans as Grandpa Rossy after the role he pla...

    This was a fun read, with lots of insights into the daily life of an ordinary (non-superstar) baseball player. As a Cubs fan, of course I am biased, because reading about the 2016 season brings such happy thoughts into my head. I give it four stars rather than five because this isn't exactly a well-...

    Non-biased review: 4 stars. As someone who does not often read books about self-improvement, I liked that this book makes valid points on how to become a "teammate." The practices described can be applied to any workplace, like creating a consistent routine, putting the goals of the team before your...

    I love baseball. While I'm not a Cubs fan, I admit I followed them on their quest in 2016 to win the world series. David Ross (AKA Grandpa Rossy) was the backup catcher for the cubs that year, mostly catching Jon Lester. This is his story, from his early days in the big leagues to his final year in ...

    Actual rating: 3.5/5I'm torn about how to review this. On one hand, I liked it. I went into it knowing nothing about David Ross except watching him in the World Series and in Dancing With the Stars. This is an informative read. I learned a lot about "Grandpa Rossy" by reading this book. This book wa...

    This was a light read, but one of the better baseball autobiographies I've read in a while. Most autobios are either way too friendly ("This guy was so good, he's one of my best friends of all time, I love everybody, everything is so good") or they are attempts at tell-alls ala Jim Bouton that fail....

    What a thoroughly delightful read. I am a huge baseball fan, and getting a Cubs player's view into some of the events of the incredible Game 7 of the 2016 World Series is a treasure. Ross has so many valuable insights on how to be a team player both in baseball and in life.I wholeheartedly recommend...
