Mark Grace began his four-month jail stint

Mark Grace was sentenced to four months in jail after pleading guilty to felony endangerment and misdemeanor driving under the influence, and the former Cubs and Diamondbacks first baseman turned announcer began serving his sentence yesterday.

Grace is at Maricopa County Jail, which is famous for sheriff Joe Arpaio’s tent city that houses non-violent offenders, and ABC-15 in Arizona reports that he’ll be granted work release along with two years of supervised probation.

Obviously serving four months in jail is never fun and Arpaio’s place is well known for being particularly rough, but as Calcaterra pointed out at the time of Grace’s sentencing at least by going in now he avoids being stuck outside in the middle of an Arizona summer.
