Player Profile



AUSTINTOWN OH- Sometimes while watching high school sports you find yourself watching a player that you know is a once in a generation type talent. In the sport of softball which is constantly growing in the valley, it was only a matter of time before we produced one of those players that could fit that description. Some people will tell you that we have found one in Austintown in Sydnie Watts. When you watch her play, it doesn’t take long to figure out those people might just be right. We’ve had greatness come through the area in the sport for sure. We’ve had All-State winners, players that have gone to Power 5 schools and that have gone on to do great things. Sydnie is on the path to put her name in with all those athletes of the past.  She has already become a local celebrity.  If you go to a softball game anywhere in the state of Ohio, there’s a good chance someone is talking about Sydnie Watts.

As Watts steps in to her sophomore year, the name of the game was consistency. After a truly prolific freshman season, Sydnie had to prove that she was going to come back just as if not more dominant against teams that have now seen her before.  We think it’s safe to say she has succeeded in that.  Her numbers put up this year are pretty much at the video game level.

In the circle, Watts has pitched 89 innings for the Falcons so far this year. Her ERA is sitting at 0.390. She only given up 29 hits total, and just 5 earned runs.  Watts holds opposing batters to an average of .096.  Can she strike people out? Yes. Watts is close to 200 already this year, right now coming in at 192.  She has already hit the 500 K mark for her career as a whole. Okay, but you only have to deal with her in the circle right? Wrong. Sydnie is one of the most dangerous hitters on Fitch’s stacked lineups.  She is hitting .512 on the season drilling 3 home runs, and knocking in 18 RBI.

Sydnie was kind enough to talk with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about her sophomore season at Fitch. They also discuss her summer playing on a national travel team, what things she developed in her game this year, and so much more! Check out the latest Austintown Fitch Player Profile only on YSN!
