    Mark Grace takes leave of absence

    I read Mark Grace is taking a leave of absence from the Diamondbacks booth to take care of personal issues. Apparently Thursday night or morning he was arrested for his 2nd DUI. I don't wanna make light of this by no means because drinking and driving is not a good thing to do but i'm surprised this happened and that he put himself in this position. Luckily nobody was hurt and I wish the best for Mark Grace. Hopefully he can get past this and move on. He always seemed like a good broadcaster whenever i've heard him.

    He's had the reputation as a hard partier ever since his playing days in Chicago, when he was a regular at the Rush Street watering holes. Good to see he's apparently getting some help.

    He must have gotten a good lawyer because it sounds like he's getting 4 months in jail with work release. I've always heard Arizona is really tough on DUI's so it sounds like he got off pretty easy. Then again the most important thing isn't the jail time but the programs designed in helping him. I always liked Mark Grace so I wish him luck.
