David Ross shines in 'Dancing With The Stars' debut, gets unexpected Skype call from Jake Arrieta and Anthony Rizzo

David Ross made his "Dancing With The Stars" debut Monday, and he didn't disappoint.

Grandpa Rossy, who capped off his MLB career by hitting a home run in Game 7 and helping the Cubs win their first World Series title in 108 years, dressed up in full uniform and danced to Steve Goodman's "Go Cubs Go" with professional dancer Lindsay Arnold.

He and Arnold drew 7s across the board, good for a score of 28 out of a possible 40. The 40-year-old retired catcher then received an unexpected Skype message from former teammates Jake Arrieta and Anthony Rizzo, prompting Ross to get teary-eyed.

Here are a few photos from Ross, with words of encouragement to vote:
