A standout student and softball player at Miami-Palmetto Senior High, Saco received her broadcast journalism degree from Syracuse University. After stints as the Marlins Park in-stadium host and calling games for the ACC Network, she joined FOX Sports Florida (now rebranded as Bally Sports Florida).

In addition to being a Marlins television reporter, Saco got the opportunity in 2019 to serve as color commentator on several radio game broadcasts (the first woman in the franchise’s history to do so). She impressed and worked an expanded schedule on the radio last season.
