Three-year-old Drake Grillo won over the crowd at the Auburn Doubledays game Wednesday night with his rendition of the national anthem.
Chelsea Grillo says Drake was planning on singing at an upcoming fundraiser game benefiting those with hip dysplasia, like one-year-old sister Sailer.
Everyone was surprised Drake was getting the nod a few weeks early…but he was ready.
“He’s been singing the national anthem probably since the winter. He’s a big fan of all sports so he kind of just pays attention to everything when he’s watching a game, whether he’s at one or watching on TV.”
He’s just as comfortable on the field with a baseball glove as he is with a mic in his hand.
“My favorite is the players running the bases.”
And he’s quite the ballplayer himself.
“I’m super, super, really fast.”
Whether he’s swinging the bat or belting out the star spangled banner, Drake is bringing people to their feet all before he turns four.
