CHICAGO — An image of an empty clubhouse locker with a “Thank You” message to the MLB was Cubs David Ross’ way of signing off.
After becoming the oldest player to hit a home run in a World Series game and bringing the Commissioner’s Trophy back to Chicago’s North Side after 108-years, the 39-year-old is now officially retired.
“Grandpa” Ross tweeted out a photo Tuesday of his locker after he completely cleared it out. The tweet reads: “@MLB Thank You.”

Teammate Anthony Rizzo responded to his tweet with simply nothing but crying emoji faces.
