PHOENIX -- Mark Grace brought his own corked bat to Arizona's game against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Sammy Sosa's longtime teammate with the Chicago Cubs is having a lot of fun with the issue, and not showing much sympathy.

After batting practice Wednesday, Grace brought a bat back from the cage and proudly showed it to teammates and reporters in the Arizona Diamondbacks' dugout.

Atop the bat was a roll of tape around a long cork. The tip of the cork stuck out like the top of a champagne bottle.

"Hey guys," Grace said. "This is my bat. I didn't know it was corked, I didn't know it was corked."

He placed it in the bat rack and walked into the clubhouse as Arizona prepared to play the White Sox.

Grace, whose sense of humor and irreverence makes him one of the most popular and colorful players in the game, had this reaction Tuesday night to Sosa's woes:

"Had I known there were corked bats in the bat rack, I certainly would have been using them, too," Grace said. "I'd have probably hit 25 home runs. It's weird. Instead of hitting them 500 feet, he wants to hit them 550, I guess."

It may take a while for me to get off the ground...
