Former Cubs 1B Mark Grace behaving quite well in prison


Former Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Grace is finishing out a 4 month sentence at Tent City Prison in Arizona. Mark Grace, most recently a D-Backs television color analyst Mark Grace was sent to jail on DUI charges. The “lovable” drunk that used to hang out a lot at Durkin’s on the North side of Chicago trolling for Lincoln Park Trixie booty is supposedly behaving quite well in the pokey.

The man who popularized the term “slumpbuster” is now working on his issues; which are bigger than sleeping with a 5/10.

A grand jury indicted Grace on Oct. 3 on four felony counts of aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.

From the Arizona Republic:

“It is my understanding Mark Grace is a ‘model’ inmate and does a lot of volunteering with cleanup and other activities,” MCSO spokesman Joaquin Enriquez said Monday. “He is looked up to by other inmates at Tent City.”

Mark Grace, of Scottsdale, has about six weeks left of his four-month sentence, which began Feb. 10 and ends June 10.

He stays in Tent City from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily. During the day, he works as an Arizona Diamondbacks minor-league hitting instructor at Salt River Fields on the Salt River Reservation.

“He is now beginning his new chapter as a uniformed coach on the field, and I am thrilled for him and us,” Derrick Hall, Diamondbacks president and CEO, said Monday.
