PHOENIX — A March 19 trial date has been set for former Arizona
Diamondbacks first baseman and television analyst Mark Grace in a DUI case.
A Maricopa County grand jury indicted Grace in October on four felony counts of
aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of
intoxicating liquor or drugs.
Prosecutors said Grace could face nearly four years in prison if convicted and
he’s not eligible for probation because it was his second DUI charge in a
Grace, 48, was arrested Aug. 23 by Scottsdale police who said his
blood-alcohol level was .095 percent, above the state’s legal limit of .08.
Grace played 16 years in the majors with the Chicago Cubs and Diamondbacks and
was a member of Arizona’s 2001 World Series championship team.
