The ‘Grandpa Rossy’ Instagram account that Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant created to send off their teammate David Ross is already in midseason form.

After a long day of catching drills on Wednesday, Bryant and Rizzo helped the 38-year-old Ross, who used a bat as a cane, out of the clubhouse.


Someone had a rough day of catching drills today.. But thats what friends are for! #yearlongretirementparty

While his back seemed to be hurting in the video, his spirits were lifted when he ran into Clark the Cub.


Fun fact about Dross.. He loves Clark! #yearlongretirementparty

Every retiring player should have one of these accounts.
