Aggressive and consistent, he was called "the greatest outfielder I ever saw" by his manager, John McGraw.

He was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972 by the Veterans Committee.

Ross Youngs was a friend of my grandfather Frank (Pancho) Snyder.I was named Ross by my parents Charles Frank and Helen Snyder. The family scrapbook has many photos of Ross and Frank when they played ball for the Giants. And indeed they were Giants.
