After David Ross' visit to City First Church in Rockford on Sunday, I bet it's safe to say that he's earned himself a few more adoring fans on and off the field in the Forest City.

With that said, it's with much excitement that I can tell you that you can expect to see Ross more than you thought in the upcoming baseball season.

It wasn't too long ago that he announced that he had accepted a position with the Cubs as the team's new special assistant to baseball operations, and now, we've learned that he's accepted a position with ESPN.

According to CSN Chicago, ESPN has hired Ross to be an MLB Analyst; he'll talk baseball on SportsCenter in studio and join some game broadcasts. Which means he'll be able to get out of the front office and back on to your television, and from the sounds of it, he's not only fun to watch; but he's great to listen to.

So what's next for Grandpa Rossy? He's working on a book, "Teammate: My Life in Baseball," which will be available in May on Amazon.
