Mark Grace: Arizona Diamondbacks Analyst Arrested for DUI

Adam BernacchioAnalyst IIIJune 9, 2011

According to TMZ.com, current Arizona Diamondbacks TV analyst and former Chicago Cub Mark Grace was arrested for driving under the influence in Scottsdale, AZ over Memorial Day weekend.

In the police report obtained by TMZ, Grace said he had consumed two glasses of Macallan scotch earlier that evening—one of which he finished “five minutes before the stop.”

I guess Grace was trying to channel his inner Ron Burgundy.

I know the NBA and NFL get a lot of flak for what goes on with their employees off the field, but Major League Baseball is doing its best to catch up to them.

Six players have been arrested for DUI this season, and now Grace has embarrassed himself.

I think all parties involved with Major League Baseball—owners, players, teams, whomever—need to put a stop to this nonsense.

If anyone needs a wake-up call on how serious driving while drunk is, all they need to do is listen to Jim Leyritz on the Boomer & Carton show.
