PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Former Arizona Diamondbacks announcer Mark Grace pleaded guilty Thursday to endangerment and misdemeanor driving under the influence and will serve four months in jail as part of a plea agreement.

Grace, 48, of Scottsdale, will begin his jail stay Feb. 10 and will be granted work release, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesperson.

Grace, also a former Chicago Cub and member of the Diamondbacks World Championship team in 2001, was arrested Aug. 23 by Scottsdale police with a blood-alcohol level of 0.095 percent, above the state's legal limit of 0.08 percent. He was originally charged with four counts of aggravated DUI.

He was not eligible for probation because it was his second DUI in less than 15 months.

He was caught driving on a suspended license and his car was not equipped with a required interlock device that was installed after a May 2011 DUI charge.

Grace will also serve two years of supervised probation, according to the spokesperson.
