PHOENIX -- A March 19 trial date has been set for former Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman and television analyst Mark Grace in a DUI case.

A Maricopa County grand jury indicted Grace in October on four felony counts of aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.

Prosecutors said Grace could face nearly four years in prison if convicted and he's not eligible for probation because it was his second DUI charge in a 15-month span.

Grace, 48, was arrested Aug. 23 by Scottsdale police who said his blood-alcohol level was .095 percent, above the state's legal limit of .08.

Grace played 16 years in the majors with the Chicago Cubs and Diamondbacks and was a member of Arizona's 2001 World Series championship team.
