Former Sox Catcher David Ross Writing Book On Career

All you need to know about David Ross is contained in a story from the 2013 Red Sox Championship season. After missing 65 games with multiple concussion issues, Ross was urged by his family to shave off his beard during the long recovery period. Said Ross, "But I knew I couldn't walk into the locker room. Those guys wouldn't let me back in if I shaved it." Ross was one of the original three "Band Of Bearded Brothers" (along with Jonny Gomes and Mike Napoli) who willed the 2013 team to a 'Boston Strong'-themed ring after the terrorist bombings at the Marathon. Now, after capturing another championship with the Cubbies, Ross is writing a book about his long career. Titled, "Teammate: My Life in Baseball", the book will be published in May. It will deal a lot with his heroics in Game Seven for Chicago—but surely will also touch on his clutch play in the 2013 World Series as well. We still love 'ya, Rossie!
