Mark Grace has been released from a Phoenix jail after completing a four-month DUI sentence as part of a work-release program, according to the Associated Press. He still must serve two years probation.

Grace, who played 16 seasons in the majors between the Cubs and Diamondbacks, was arrested last August and received his second DUI in 15 months. The 48-year-old pleaded guilty on January 31 to felony endangerment and misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol and began his sentence on February 10 in Maricopa County’s outdoor Tent City.

Grace was employed by the Diamondbacks during his jail sentence. While he was let go last October after nine years as a television analyst with the club, he was brought back this spring a minor league coach and instructor.

    I used to spend my 5 dollar allowance on baseball cards. after opening a fresh pack of topps
    I used to set grace’s card aside and away from all the scrubs … Same with mcguire, palmeiro, clemens, griffey jr and a few others… And yes, those cards have all been thrown out by my parents.

    well e spent for months in jail. did his time and luckily didn’t kill anyone. We move on and I for one hold no anger towards him. Except that I never thought he was a good announcer but I havnt met many d back fans besides my father, so I don’t have a huge back ground on his Mic skills.

    I wonder if he found a slump-buster

    Could’ve been a Cubs legend and ruled Chi-town for life. But instead, he couldn’t keep his drunken mouth shut after signing with the D-Backs after his career ended with the Cubs. Talk about your poster child for how to destroy a legacy. Total failure as a human being.

    And soon we’ll find out if he actually learned anything from his troubles. Will he ever again drink and drive?
