The Chicago Cubs have had some great players play for them and sometimes Mark Grace’s career gets overlooked by fans of the team.
A very good former Chicago Cubs player is celebrating a birthday today. Mark Grace turns 56 years old today so it is only fitting to look back on what made him such a great player for a long time. Grace spent the first 13 years of his career with the Cubs and was a very good player for pretty much the entire duration. After the 2000 season ended, Grace signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks where he would play for three years.
In his first year with Arizona (2001), he had his career highlight when he was a part of that team that won the World Series. Most of his career damage came with the Cubs but that certainly was a big part of his career as he was a part of the team that won the last game of the season. Grace was a member of some pretty bad Cubs teams over his career so getting that ring with Arizona near the end of his career had to feel really nice.
