Mark Grace Booking Agent Details
Mark Grace is a former MLB player who played for 16 seasons with the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks. His defensive position was first base. He batted left-handed and wore jersey number 17. On September 26, 2003, Grace announced his retirement from baseball. He continues his involvement in the game as a television color commentator for the Diamondbacks and for Fox Saturday Baseball. Grace's trademark unusual style and off-the-wall terms (such as "slumpbuster", "never-say-die-mondbacks", and "Gas!") bring a unique quality to the Diamondbacks' broadcast team. Grace has stated a desire to coach a major league team in the future. He was considered for the Diamondbacks' managerial position following the 2004 season, but the Diamondbacks hired Bob Melvin instead. On August 3, 2006, Grace returned to Wrigley Field and sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th-inning stretch for the first time. On August 24, 2012 Grace requested an indefinite leave of absence from the booth, and at the end of the 2012 season, the team announced that he would not be returning for the 2013 season.
