Personality

Cory Ross is a speedy lead-off hitter known for his winning smile and his base-running ability, setting the table for the middle of the Steaks lineup. Because of this, his teammates liken him to the blaseball version of a Labrador Retriever.

Background

A local product, born and raised in Southlake, Ross was primed to take over the Ross Oil empire from his father, but when he learned of the ecological damage his father's oil pipeline had caused, the young Ross made the decision to leave behind his family's legacy. The decision was a contentious one in the Ross household, with his father insistent that Ross take the mantle of Chief Enigmatic Oiler. However, Ross was determined to make up for his family's mess, and so he struck out on his own. For the next several years, Ross wandered the countryside, picking up litter, helping with community clean-up projects, and taking odd janitorial jobs where he could, enjoying the freedom from his family and earning his own way.

Ross eventually returned to the DFW Metroplex and followed a trail of refuse into the George Foreman Stadium where he offered to clean up. However, the stadium staff misunderstood him and thought he was the Steaks' new cleanup hitter. The bewildered Ross was ushered out to the field, where he stepped up to home plate facing pitcher Mike Townsend of the Seattle Garages. Still holding his trusty broom, Ross decided to make the best of the situation, and made contact with a slow curve-ball, sending it deep into left field. As he rounded the bases, he saw a subtle nod from Coach, who looked down from the top of the stadium, and Ross knew he had found his new home.

After displaying consistent on-base percentages, Ross was moved to the head of batting rotation, but still cleans up whenever he can.
