Watch: David Ross hits home run in final game of his career
In the final game of his 15-year major league career, David Ross hit a home run off Andrew Miller in the top of the sixth inning of Game 7 of the World Series at Progressive Field.
It was the second home run of the postseason for the 39-year-old Ross. With the shot, he becomes the old man to homer in Game 7 of the World Series. He is the oldest player to homer in the Fall Classic since Eddie Murray went yard for the Indians in 1995.

Ross joined the Cubs when the team signed Jon Lester. He served as Lester's personal catcher with the Red Sox, where he won a World Series in 2007. Before the season, Ross announced 2016 would be his final season.
