Ask any local softball coach or pitcher what the scariest sight is on the diamond and the answer is usually Visitation’s Sydney Love-Baker.
“She can change the game with one swing,” said Sidwell coach Bethany Sindy. “She is quite the slugger behind the plate — and with one missed spot, it’s gone. We have not faced anyone that has sticks like her.”
Love-Baker, who graduated from Visitation this spring, won a bevy of accolades during her time at the Georgetown school, including The Current’s softball player of the year honor. But she recently tacked on one final distinction to close out her high school career — a second straight D.C. Gatorade softball player of the year award.
