Grissom was called up to the Majors for the first time in 2022 and immediately made a good impression.
The young infielder hit .291 with five home runs, with a .350 on-base percentage, a .440 slugging percentage, and a .792 OPS in 41 games and 141 at-bats.
On Thursday, the 22-year-old stopped by MLB Network to discuss his journey to the big leagues.
There, he reflected on his excitement for getting the call to join the big-league club, sharing that he was feeling nearly every emotion possible in what was a life-changing moment.

Grissom talked about the moment he got the call, revealing that it was late at night when he received the good news.
He reflected on how he was feeling in that moment and discussed not being able to contain his excitement.
He also discussed not knowing that several key Braves players were on the injured list, which ultimately led to him getting the call.
The young infielder also was asked about his first Major League home run, which came at Fenway Park.
Grissom discussed what was going through his mind at this moment, and talked about how he had been struggling at the plate and was looking to make contact.
Of course, he did more than make contact, and hit it even farther than he expected.
But ultimately, he hit it out of the park for his first big-league home run.
Now, he’ll prepare to make another impression in 2023.
