Is Grady Sizemore Black?

I recently read this and it affirms Grady Sizemore is black:

"Grady Sizemore III was born on August 2, 1982, in Seattle, Washington to Donna and Grady Sizemore II. Like Derek Jeter, Grady was the product of a mixed-race marriage. Donna is white, while Grady II is African-American."

I would've never thought about him being black, his mom has really strong genes!
Is this statement about Grady Sizemore true? Is he black?

Yes, Grady Sizemore is half black.

According to SI:

"As someone who turned down the chance to play quarterback at the University of Washington, as well as someone who said he hopes he can inspire other black athletes to play baseball (Sizemore's father, Grady, is African-American and his mother, Donna, is white), Sizemore is a timely role model for baseball. Just don't expect him to sell himself beyond letting his game deliver the message."
