Short Hops: Mark Grace by Jesse Thorn

Jesse Thorn is a prominent voice in the world of men’s style via his blog Put This On. He is also the host of the public radio show The Sound of Young America, and co-host of the Jordan, Jesse Go! podcast, both of which can be found on his web site, He chose to highlight the work of Mark Grace.

My choice for first baseman of the 90s is easy: Mark Grace. The best first basemen have a certain grace. They may be slow (which Grace certainly was), but they shouldn’t be lumbering. Grace was smooth and elegant both at the plate and around the bag, rarely made mistakes and had the most hits in the majors during the decade.
