Lots of Try

As a man who stood before a real judge, Grace sees the humor. But he tries not to laugh too hard.
“I’m a fun-loving guy, and I love a good joke as much as anybody,” Grace said. “But I tell people there’s nothing funny about this. I got 2,445 hits in the big leagues, over 500 doubles and was a career .300 hitter. I won four Gold Gloves, a World Series ring, and guess where I’m sleeping the next four months? In jail. It doesn’t matter what I accomplished.
“But we’ve all known this day was coming, and it’s something I have to deal with. I’m going to be a much better man for it, a much better father, a much better friend and a much better Diamondbacks employee. And if this makes me a better member of society at age 48, then you know what? It’s going to be worth it.”
Grace serving his time.
