Julie Larsen-Baker was one of FSU’s all-time greatest softball players and one of the finest athletes in school history. Larsen’s power pitching style led the Lady Seminoles to their first ever top twenty ranking in 1986 and she followed that by leading FSU to its first appearance in the fast pitch College World Series in 1987. Larsen’s career totals include a school record 834 strikeouts, 12 no hitters, six perfect games, and an amazing 50 shutouts. Following her standout athletic career with the Seminoles, Larsen married Seminole Assistant Baseball Coach Chip Baker in a memorable ceremony at home plate between games of a double-header on May 7, 1997 at Dick Howser Stadium.
