Mark Grace, a former Major League Baseball first baseman who spent 16 seasons with the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks of the National League has been working out of the Cubs corner as a third analyst on the Marquee Sports Network for the vast majority of the season. Be that as it may, on Saturday, Grace told a senseless anecdote about his ex inadvertently stopping in then-Brewers proprietor and MLB Commissioner Bud Selig’s spot into an odd, obsolete affront.
“I’m going to go Archie Bunker on you guys: I called her ‘the dingbat,‘” Grace said in the head of the 6th inning, alluding to the bigot, sexist “All in the Family” character played via Carroll O’Connor. The remark immediately circulated around the web and Grace confronted kickback both for the expression and his genuine discourse.
Grace gave an expression of remorse after the game, however Marquee Sports Network’s best course of action is still not yet decided. “During today’s game I referred to my ex-wife in a way that I absolutely should not have,” Grace said in a statement to the Chicago Tribune. “I want everyone to know how very sorry I am about that. My remarks were offensive and inappropriate, and I deeply apologize.”
