Former big leaguer Mark Grace is heading to jail.Grace was busted back in August for driving drunk and he was charged with four counts of aggravated DUI.  All in all he was looking at serving, potentially, three years in prison.After pleading guilty to endangerment and DUI on Thursday, he was issued his fate... a four-month sentence that includes work-release jail time as well as three years of supervised probation.  In addition to jail time, an Interlock device will be installed in Grace's vehicle for six months and he will need permission to travel out of state.And as far as the work-release...the former first baseman will need to find a job.  Following his DUI arrest last fall (which was the second for Grace in 15 months), the Arizona Diamondbacks relieved him of his broadcasting duties.Oooops.Is professional "slumb busting" an option?

  • Freakin' amazing...he made lots of money playing MLB and was still makng a good living as a color commentator,(all be it a very bad one), for a MLB Team...and he was too STUPID to call a damn cab. He's getting exactly what he deserves. Thank God he didn't kill someones mother, father, grandparent or child.
