Fresh off a World Series victory with the Chicago Cubs, David Ross is joining ESPN as a baseball analyst.

"I'm excited to dive right in and start talking baseball with my new colleagues at ESPN," Ross said in a statement. "It truly is the worldwide leader in sports and I'm grateful for the opportunity to join this incredible team. We're going to have a lot of fun this season."

Ross retired after helping the Cubs end their historic championship drought.

At 39 years, 228 days, Ross -- who spent two seasons with the Cubs -- became the oldest player to hit a home run in a Game 7 of a World Series.
