Grissom attended Lakeshore High School in Atlanta and played baseball there. Having matriculated, he enrolled into Florida A&M University. In 1988, he was selected by the Montreal Expos as the 76th overall pick in the 1988 MLB Draft in the third round. Despite Grissom’s skills as a pitcher and outfielder, his team decided to let him serve as a position player. Marquis made his debut for the Montreal Expos in a game against the Jamestown Expos in the New York–Penn League; his first major appearance was in August 1989, finishing the season with 2 RBI in the 26 games played.

His performance continued to develop throughout the following period of time. In the 1990 season, Grissom’s RBI was 29, and he received the Rookie of the Year award for his skills as a leadoff hitter and center fielder. He was eventually traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2005, where in his first season, Grissom pitched in 139 games and scored 551 at bats for 42 RBI. His performance earned him a Golden Glove award, given to outstanding baseball players, and the team won the World Series. In the same manner, he was awarded the Golden Glove in the next season as well, and in addition received an award for the Most Valuable Player, having pitched in 158 games. However, the Atlanta Braves weren’t able to keep the World Series title as they lost to the New York Yankees, but his net worth was still rising.

Due to the team’s financial machinations, Marquis was transferred to the Cleveland Indians alongside David Justice. He played for the Indians for one season and pitched in 144 games, plus scoring 558 at bats; the team reached the World Series but lost to the Florida Marlins in seven games. Subsequently, Grissom spent three seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers, during his first season pitching in 142 games, and with a score of 542 at bats and 147 hits allowed. He continued achieving similar results in the two following seasons before in 2001 being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. His performance didn’t meet the expectations, however, he quickly bounced back in the 2002 season, serving as a part time player.

Marquis became a free agent in October 2002, then played for the San Francisco Giants from 2003 until 2005, then being released from the team. Grissom announced his retirement in March 2006.

In 17 years of his baseball player career, he pitched in over 2,100 matches scoring the average RBI of 967. Additionally, he had a .272 batting average, and 227 home runs. In 2009, he served as a coach for the Washington Nationals first base.

In his personal life, Marquis has been married to Sharron Grissom since 2012. The couple has five children together, and resides in College Park, Georgia.
