Major League Baseball first baseman Mark Grace has a net worth of $15 million. In addition to his net worth, he has the distinction of being one of the lucky few to not only have a career in the sport he loves, but a long lasting one at that, playing 16 seasons with both the Chicago Cubs and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Grace's baseball career began in high school, where he played in his hometown of Turin, California. From there he played at San Diego University, and he was drafted from that institution by the Chicago Cubs. His 12 years with that club were characterized by his non-flashy but consistent performance at bat. Despite this reputation, he is currently the last Cub to have hit a single, a double, a triple, and a home run all in the same game - an accomplishment that is known as "hitting for the cycle." He managed this feat during a game on Sunday, May 9, 1993. After finishing with the Cubs, Grace played out the remainder of his career in 3 seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Since then, Grace has remained a presence in the lives of baseball fans through his broadcasting career, calling Diamondback games in his unusual style as a color commentator.
Mark Eugene Grace (born June 28, 1964 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina) is a former Major League Baseball player 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.
Mark played high school baseball and basketball at Tustin High School in Tustin, California.
After playing baseball for San Diego State University, Grace was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1985. He spent three years playing in the Cubs farm system before making his major league debut May 2, 1988.
Grace was never a flashy power hitter, and was often overlooked on Cubs teams that included Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson and Sammy Sosa. However, Grace was a consistent, steady hitter, compiling almost 2,500 hits and more than 500 doubles during his 16-year career. He had a career on-base percentage of .383 and collected four Gold Glove Awards.
Grace holds the distinction of collecting the most hits (1,754) in the decade of the 1990s. Currently Grace and Pete Rose are the only major league baseball players to lead a decade in hits and not be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Grace also had the most doubles in the 1990s with 364 and the most sacrifice flies with 73.
He was the last Cub to have hit for the cycle, doing so on Sunday, May 9, 1993. The song played most frequently on the Wrigley Field organ prior to a Grace home at bat was "Taking Care of Business" which Grace explained was due to his bit part in a Jim Belushi film of the same name.
Mark Grace signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks on December 8, 2000 with a $6 million, two-year contract after the Cubs declined to offer salary arbitration. The deal included a mutual $3 million option year in 2003. He received $5.3 million in his last season with the Cubs but accepted less money for the opportunity to live year-round at his home in suburban Scottsdale, Arizona with his family. "For me to remain a Cub, the Cubs would have wanted to want me back

I could make a fortune selling my World Series tickets. But I won't.

I remember seeing Sammy Sosa hit numbers 61 and 62 in that summer of '98. I remember seeing Mark Grace catch the final out of the '98 wild card one-game playoff. I remember seeing Kerry Wood's home run in Game 7 of the 2003 National League Championship Series.
