SEE IT: Nats prospect Baker makes insane catch in Low-A debut


Darren Baker's Low-A career with the Fredricksburg Nationals is off to a strong start.

The Nationals' 10th-round draft pick this past June, Baker made his debut for Washington's Low-A affiliate on Wednesday and immediately made his presence felt.

The former University of California standout recorded his first hit with the club by legging out an infield single, putting his blazing speed on display for everybody to see.

Then later in the contest, Baker flashed with his glove as well. In the sixth inning with the Fredricksburg Nationals up by two, Baker made an excellent sliding catch in shallow right field, which led to an easy double play to end the inning.

Take a look:

Baker was first introduced to the baseball world back in 2002, when his toddler self was a batboy for the San Francisco Giants, a club that was managed at the time by his father, Dusty. 

Now a 22-year-old, the younger Baker is trying to carve out his own baseball legacy. If Wednesday is any indication, he's off to a strong start.
