Reid Love, a 2012 graduate of Dunnellon High, delivers a pitch during one of his recent outings for the Delmarva Shorebirds, a Low Single-A team in the Baltimore Orioles minor league system. Love, who was drafted in the 10th round by the Orioles, has enjoyed a productive, albeit up-and-down season in his first full year in professional baseball. “I love it, I love it; it is great,” said Love, a lanky southpaw, about pitching in the professional ranks.
Spreading his wings

As the calendar draws closer to September, Reid Love knows the first chapter of his first full season in professional baseball will officially be in the books.

While the results of his inaugural campaign have been mixed, the former Dunnellon School standout knows he’s come a long way since he began plying his trade at the Dunnellon Little League complex so many years ago.
