MLB.com: Having grown up in a baseball family, how important has Christmas been in your family, when you know everybody can be together?

Jason Grilli: It’s definitely huge. Holidays for us are huge especially when you’re away from them so much throughout the year. For us, the holidays that we play [during] can be tough. Any holiday, I think, especially during the baseball season, whether it’s a birthday or a wedding, those are the occasions that sometimes you miss out on, unless it’s someone in your immediate family. So Christmas and Thanksgiving are very huge in the sense that it’s a point to celebrate the holiday for what it is. I celebrate Christmas and we celebrate the birth of Jesus and what his sacrifice means to us and we celebrate being together.

MLB.com: Is there a big holiday tradition in your family?

Grilli: The big things are the stockings. Usually we have some sort of fish or seafood for our meal. And we usually try to go to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
