Former Chicago Cubs great Mark Grace called his ex-wife a dingbat in the middle of broadcasting a game.
Mark Grace will always be loved in the Windy City. He spent several great years with the Chicago Cubs and enjoyed 16 total campaigns in the bigs. He’s now traded his jersey for a suit, as he’s in the broadcast booth.
However, Grace went viral on Twitter for all of the wrong reasons on Saturday after ended up calling his ex-wife a dingbat in the middle of the Cubs-Brewers game. What in the world was Grace thinking in doing this? He’s received plenty of negative feedback for the comments.
Fans tuning into the game were of course taken aback by what Grace had to say. He hasn’t been a popular figure in the broadcast booth from the start, with many out there complaining about his style during games.
For him to call his ex-wife a ‘dingbat’ surely didn’t help Grace in the department of trying to win fans over in his new career.
For Grace, it’s not normal for him to get on the bad side of baseball supporters across the country. He spent 16 years with the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks. Time and time again he delivered some key hits and incredible plays in the field as well.
As of this writing, Grace is yet to apologize for the comments he made during the game. To make matters worse for Chicago, they suffered a tough 6-5 loss to Milwaukee. While it was a rough loss, the Cubs are 13-5 on the year and are in first place of the NL Central standings.
Things have been going pretty smoothly in Chicago throughout the summer, and fans are hoping the campaign ends with another World Series title. For any heart-stopping postseason games, let’s hope Grace worries more about the action going on and less about insulting his ex-wife.
