"For me to remain a Cub, the Cubs would have wanted to want me back and the Cubs would have had to win", Grace said at the time.
"Neither of those happened and I'm one proud Diamondback now." Grace wore his familiar number 17 in Arizona where he played for three more seasons, including helping the Diamondbacks win the 2001 World Series.
The song that played most frequently on the Wrigley Field organ prior to a Grace at bat was "Taking Care of Business", which Grace explained was due to his bit part in a Jim Belushi film of the same name.
Grace signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks on December 8, 2000, with a million, two-year contract after the Cubs declined to offer salary arbitration.
Having never even visited Yankee Stadium, he belted a home run there in Game 4 of the series.
Grace led off the bottom of the 9th inning with a single off Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera, which rallied the Arizona Diamondbacks to a come-from-behind victory in Game 7.

In 1995, Grace hit .326 with a .395 OBP and a .516 SLG, and hit 51 doubles (which led the NL). Grace collected the most hits (1,754) and doubles (364) of any player in the 1990s.
