Brandon Pfaadt’s Parents: Father Brian And Mother Staci
The Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Pfaadt was born to his parents, Brian and Staci Pfaadt, on October 15, 1998, in Louisville, Kentucky. Besides him, his parents have two sons, Brady and Brett.
His dad, Brian, is the son of former athletic director and administrator at Trinity High School, Bob Pfaadt. Bob was himself a baseball player for Trinity HS in the 1950s and was later inducted into the Trinity Hall of Fame.
Inheriting the athletic genes from his dad, Brian also became an athlete. Even though he played high school soccer and baseball, he left playing the game during college to focus on his studies.
Currently, Brian is the director of Facilities Management at Bellarmine University. All his kids attended Bellarmine for higher education.
Speaking of Brandon’s mother, Staci is a former basketball player. So, allowing their kids to enjoy sports during their spare time was normal for the Pfaadt couple.
Both Staci and Brian have made many sacrifices to help their kids achieve their dreams. Despite the high cost, they sent their sons to the travel ball every summer so they could have fun and improve their skills.
