Happy Birthday MARK !!
Born on this day in 1964, Mark (Eugene) Grace played 13 seasons for the Chicago Cubs, winning four gold gloves and being honored as an All Star three times. In the 1989 National League Championship Series Mark's performance was unforgettable in his duel with Will Clark -- GRACE batted 647 with 8 RBI and 1 HR and Clark batted 650 with 8 RBI and 1 HR to help San Francisco win in 5 games. Mark batted over 300 nine times. His over-all batting average was 303. Mark's specialty was magnificent fielding and clutch hitting. Thanks, Mark. for being there.
