I've lost count already of the number of times some variation of "how is Lester going to be able to pitcher without Lester catching him?" has come up, as if Lester and Ross spent more than, like, a grand total of something like 4 scattered seasons being on the same team.

From obscure backup catcher to Dancing With the Stars. Amazing what 2 years on this Cubs team will do for you.

Yes but it will be worth it to see the Cardinal fan reaction to this.

this has always been the case with shows using celebrities/stars.


they've used all kinds of olympians, football players and other athletes, but it's vaguely interesting that this is the first mlb player to participate. It takes place during the summer I assume so obviously current players can't participate, but there are lots of former players and I would have thought some 90's era yankees had participated or some former dodger.

I've never watched the show but I probably will as long as Ross is on it. Quietly hoping there's an opportunity for a Bryzzo cameo, though that may be impossible.

It premiers live in LA on March 20th. The Cubs have a game at 3 that day and an off day the next day...maybe Joe gives Bryzzo the day off to fly to LA and be in the audience...

Probably a greater percentage than those that know who David Ross is. He was a really big part of the Will Ferrell era SNL and has been in movies. Baseball players pale in comparison to actual TV/Movie celebrities.
