 Biographical Information
David Ross backed up Ben Davis on the US team that won Bronze at the 1994 World Junior Championship. He was 0 for 7 in the event. A year later, he was again 0 for 7 in the Championship backing up Justin Lehr but the US won Gold. He was a teammate of Josh Fogg at Florida, and again later with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Playing for the Chicago Cubs in his 14th major league season in 2015, he got to make the first pitching appearances of his professional career. On May 9th, he pitched a scoreless inning of mop-up relief in a 12-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, then repeated the feat against the Philadelphia Phillies on July 26th. That day, he came up to bat in the bottom of the 9th and hit a solo homer off Hector Neris, becoming the first Cubs reliever to hit a long ball since Carlos Marmol in 2006.
