David Ross homered earlier in Game 7 of the World Series.
David Ross, on the verge of retirement, is Jon Lester's light-hitting personal catcher. It just didn't totally line up.
But when Ross homered, it turns out it was more than just an oddity. It was actual history. Allow a Wikipedia editor to explain Ross' historical significance.

Ahh, yes. Who could forget Ross' homer in the 1908 series, a year when the ball was covered in mud and sticks and no one homered? Hence, the unforgettability of Ross' shot.
Also, his tenure as a mayor of Dong Town. Unforgettable, too.

He also won the 2016 World Series with four innings still remaining in Game 7.
Wiki already has David Ross's accomplishments as 2016 World Series Champion 🤔 pic.twitter.com/hjHiVWj9Vy— Ben Bradshaw (@BenABradshaw) November 3, 2016
Honest to goodness, who saw a Ross bomb stopping the momentum slide in this Game 7? Only people with 20/20 hindsight? Got it.
Thanks, Wikipedia. Now we'll never forget you.
