AJ Minter Father Danny And Mother Brenda Minter
AJ Minter parents Danny and Brenda Minter run a construction company called Minter Construction.
The company, named after their family name, was incorporated on 10 December 2019. It falls under a domestic limited liability company (LLC) registered at 267 Bush Buck Way, Bullard, Texas.
His father, Daniel "Danny" Minter, serves as the family business's president, director, and agent. His mother, Brenda Minter, was born Brenda Kay Lanford in Carthage, Texas. She graduated from Carthage High School in 1985.
Born on 30 June 1967, Mrs. Minter is currently 55, while her husband was born on 24 January 1959, making him 64. Minter's mom and dad have an age gap of nine years.
Daniel and Brenda Minter are proud and supportive parents of the former Texas A&M standout who grew up in east Texas. The family still calls the area home.
The Minters admit that it can be nervewracking sometimes to watch their son's games - like the World Series. "Now when he pitches, I am shaking from head to toe," Brenda admitted to ABC13's Adam Winkler.
While AJ is living out his dream on the sport's biggest stage, some of their friends back home have a difficult scenario - stuck between rooting for their favorite team or their childhood friend.
"We have a lot of friends that are Astro fans. But they tell me they are pulling for AJ when he comes in," Brenda explained.
Daniel even broke a bone in his hand while cheering for his son and his team in Game 3 of the 2021 World Series, a match during which AJ pitched one inning and did not allow a hit.
The elder Minter does not remember how or when it happened, but it happened "somewhere during all the celebrations, fist-pumping and high-fives."
AJ completely acknowledges the dedication of his folks. When he was informed that he had been called up by the big-league Braves, he could not wait to make his first and most important call - to his home in Whitehouse, Texas.
“Definitely my parents,” said the hard-throwing left-handed reliever. He called his dad and told him, "I have got some bad news. Can’t go to work tomorrow. You have got to come watch your son pitch in the big leagues."
