Former Diamondbacks and Cubs first baseman Mark Grace pleaded guilty to felony endangerment and driving under the influence of alcohol, reports the Associated Press:

Grace was arrested last August in Scottsdale — his second drunken driving arrest in 15 months — and could have faced more than three years in prison. He had pleaded not guilty in October to four felony counts of aggravated DUI and was scheduled to go on trial March 19.

Grace worked as a TV analyst for the Diamondbacks but was fired after the August arrest. After the most recent incident, Grace was sentenced to four months in jail under a work-release program and will also serve two years of probation.

Grace, a four-time gold glove winner, played in the majors from 1988 to 2003 and hit .303/.383/.442 over the course of his career.
