Vaughn Grissom Father Anthony And Mother Elizabeth Grissom
Vaughn Grissom parents Anthony and Elizabeth Grissom were present at Fenway Park when he made his MLB debut.
The proud couple was filmed a few seconds after the monstrous hit by Vaughn that saw the baseball go out of the stadium. The couple embraced each other, celebrating the occasion they will remember forever.
Anthony and Elizabeth raised their two kids, Vaughn and his older sister, Jessie, in Orlando, Florida. But unlike other baseball parents, who take their kids to baseball stadiums, that didn't quite happen in the Grissom household.
In an interview with Ben Ingram for the YouTube series, Riding With The Braves, the prospect said his first trip to a baseball stadium as a fan came in 2021 when he traveled to his friends' game in Aberdeen, Maryland.
Anthony Grissom Was First To Know About Vaughn Call Up
Vaughn Grissom's father Anthony Grissom's joy at seeing him make his debut for the Braves was evident in the photos shared by Jessie.
But the father-of-two, in the beginning, believed it was all a joke.
In the same interview, when Ingram asked Vaughn what went through his head when he got the call-up, the shortstop believed he was in trouble, But it turned out to be a call for his MLB debut.
Grissom then said he made sure to call his dad first as he was the one who had a major hand during his formative years. During their phone conversation, Anthony thought his son was fooling around with him.
But after a while, he realized his son was serious, and now he had to book tickets to Boston. Anthony, who has kept himself away from social media, has appeared a few times on his children's feed.
One of the videos, shared by Jessie, shows Anthony rearing up his Chevelle, giving hints he may be a motorhead.
Elizabeth Grissom Has Puerto Rican Roots
Vaughn Grissom's mother Elizabeth Grissom is proud of her Puerto Rican roots, and her Facebook handle shows it. It also looks like she might have gone her separate ways with Anthony.
The proud mom, Elizabeth, has shared several photos of her with her two kids, and for the Puerto Rican lady, family comes first.
In a tribute post shared by Vaughn in 2018, the future MLB star promised his mom he would keep working hard until she gets to drive all types of foreign cars.
In another post, Vaughn shared a photo of Elizabeth raising her hands in front of the Braves, CoolToday Park as he captioned the post, "Imagine doing what you love and seeing your mom support you like this."
