One can only imagine what Auburn players must think of David Ross‘ risqué Magic Mike performance.
Ross, a member of the most recent Auburn baseball team to reach the College World Series, is trying to earn a title on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
Auburn baseball’s official Twitter account put out a video showing a few current players sitting in as replacements on the panel of judges as they broke down Ross’ first performance with partner Lindsay Arnold.

“He was bouncing around, but I saw some stiff hips there, old man hips,” senior Daniel Robert said. “Probably do a little yoga before you go out there.”
“Started off hot, really nice, really nice start, then really started going on a roller coaster there,” redshirt senior Sam Gillikin said. “That slide into first, that hurts. That can’t happen. It’s got to be better, David. You’re better than that. Auburn expects more.”
Ross is a two-time World Series champion (2013 with the Boston Red Sox and 2016 with the Chicago Cubs). He works as a special assistant with the Cubs and is an analyst with ESPN.
He played with the Tigers during their run to the CWS in 1997 before transferring to Florida and making it there again the following season.
He’s a member of fan website flywareagle.com’s all-time Auburn baseball lineup along with Tigers legends Bo Jackson and Frank Thomas.
