Longtime Chicago Cubs first baseman and current Diamondbacks color guy Mark Grace was arrested in Scottsdale on Memorial Day, the Arizona Republic reports.
The report says the 46-year-old Grace was stopped after 1 a.m. on May 30 while weaving within his lane. Grace didn’t have his wallet or license with him at the time of his arrest. He admitted to “having a few drinks,” the police report said, and was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Results of a blood test are pending.
Grace has continued to work Diamondbacks games for Fox Sports Arizona since the arrest. He’s in his eighth season with the network.
Grace played 16 seasons with the Cubs and Diamondbacks from 1988-2003. A three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glover, he hit .303/.383/.442 with 173 homers and 1,146 RBI over the course of his career. He led the NL with 51 doubles in 1995.
