David Ross and Lindsay Arnold on Dancing with the Stars
David Ross is a retired MLB catcher who has played for various major league teams, including the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs. In 2016, he became the oldest player to achieve a home run in the World Series. Although catchers do not always get the recognition they deserve in the sports world, Ross will definitely shine on Dancing with the Stars. He will be the first-ever professional baseball player to compete on Dancing with the Stars.
Ross’ Thoughts about Coming on Dancing with the Stars
During an interview with US Weekly, Ross said, “I’m a guy that doesn’t take himself too seriously. I told Lindsay she can put me in pink and bling me out in rhinestones, it doesn’t matter! Do me up, put me in the outfit — I’m comfortable enough in my own skin that it doesn’t matter if I think other people are judging me. I think I’ll probably be harder on myself than anyone else.” Ross seems pretty confident about his dancing skills, is willing to learn anything, and will give it his best shot. He is used to being in front of millions of people, so we are sure he will be able to handle himself well on stage.
