Addi Baker, Northfield High School Senior signed a letter of intent on Friday, Nov. 13 to play softball at Southern Illinois University.

Baker, who is undecided in a major told The Paper of Wabash that she decided on SIU because she liked the coaches and the school.

“I’m excited to have new teammates and make new friends and all of the experiences that are going to come with playing softball there,” she said.

Brandon Baker, NHS softball coach and Addi’s father told The Paper that he is excited to see all of her hard work pay off.

“She has worked very hard and missed a lot of things with friends to play softball and it has paid off. She is going to do great things in college. She is going to a great program, coaches are fantastic and it’s a great school, so I’m excited for her.”
