Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant help Grandpa David Ross leave clubhouse

Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

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.

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

Every retiring player should have one of these accounts.
