The woman who has accused Trevor Bauer of sexual assault had previous sexual relationships with two members of the rival San Diego Padres, shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and pitcher Michael Clevinger, she tearfully revealed in court.
The 27-year-old, identified only as Ms. Hill, testified for a second time on Tuesday during a hearing to extend her restraining order against the Dodger’s pitcher for five years.
Under cross-examination from his attorney Shawn Holley, Hill, who claimed she is ‘terrified’ and ‘lives in fear’ of Bauer, confessed to her earlier flings with other MLB players.
She broke down in tears in the witness box as she admitted that she had been fired from the Pad Squad – a San Diego Padres promotional group – because of her sexual relationship with Tatis Jr. in 2019.
When grilled about her fling with Michael Clevinger in October 2020, Hill initially pushed back asking why is this relevant,’ before admitting to the affair.

Earlier in the hearing, the San Diego native explained why she wanted to keep her restraining order against Bauer saying, “I am terrified of him and what he could do to me and what he’s capable of.’
‘I fear so much him contacting me or threatening me. I don’t want to hear that he’s going to come after me in San Diego,’ she added.
Hill claimed she ‘felt sick to my stomach’ when Bauer allegedly told her he would come visit her after she told him how injured she was after her second rough sex session with him.
‘When he come to San Diego in June (for a baseball game) I went to northern California because I didn’t want to be in the same city as him,’ she told the court.
Hill said she sought a restraining order six weeks ago after police in Pasadena – where Bauer lives – failed to assure her that the $34 million-a-year pitcher would be arrested.
Pasadena police are still investigating her sexual assault claims but no charges have been brought.
‘I waited as long as I could (for Bauer’s arrest), but I had to get protection for myself,’ she added.
‘I lost my job. I lost my place of residence. I had to move back in with my parents. I had no source of income.
‘I have to deal with sadness every day and living in fear of Trevor Bauer is brutal.’
When her lawyer, Lisa Helfend-Meyer asked Hill if she was motivated by a desire for publicity, money, or revenge, she replied, ‘no.’
She also admitted to Holley that she started sharing screenshots of her conversations with Bauer with her friends.

On Monday, attorney Lisa Helfend-Meyer told the court Bauer had treated her client ‘like a rag doll’ and used ‘her for his own sexual deviant pleasure’.
‘Did you tell Mr. Bauer you were sharing those screenshots?’ asked Holley. ‘No,’ replied Hill.
After her first hookup with Bauer was set up, she texted a friend saying: ‘I’m going to his house….I already have my hooks into him…You know how I roll.’
Asked what she meant by that message, Hill said, ‘I meant that I had Trevor’s attention.’
And when Holley asked what ‘You know how I roll’ meant, she responded: ‘That was about my previous history dating ball players.’
After her sexual rough sex tryst with Bauer – where she claims he punched her closed fisted in the face and vagina and choked her out with her own hair – Hill was examined on May 18 at Palomar Health Hospital in San Diego by forensic nurse Kelly Valencia.
‘I had never seen that type of bruising to the vaginal area in my experience – it was frankly alarming,’ Nurse Valencia told the court, describing Hill’s vaginal bruising as red/purple.
She said that during the exam, she noticed Hill also had bruising to both nipples and both buttocks, bruising to both eyes, a right cheek bruise, left cheek swelling and bruising inside her mouth.
Earlier last month, DailyMail.com revealed Hill had boasted to her friend about ‘getting into’ Bauer’s ‘head’ when the LA pitcher lost two games to the San Diego Padres shortly after their first meeting.
The text messages showed she also admitted to having a sexual relationship with Tatis Jr, which led to her resignation from the team’s ‘Pad Squad’.
Hill and Bauer came face to face in court on Monday for the first time since she accused the athlete of assaulting her over the course of two sexual encounters in April and May.
She described how Bauer allegedly choked her unconscious and had anal sex with her without her consent after he became violent during their trysts.
Ms. Hill broke down in tears as she detailed how Bauer allegedly choked her unconscious and had anal sex with her without her consent
Hill claims she consented to having sex with Bauer on two occasions but, during the encounters, he allegedly punched her repeatedly, choked her unconscious and sodomized her without her consent
Text messages included in the lawsuit revealed Hill had sent Bauer sexually explicit messages telling him to ‘choke her out’ and ‘slap’ her during sex.
She later told the court Monday that she didn’t mean what she said and was just telling Bauer what ‘he wanted to hear.
Hill described the encounter as ‘horrifying,’ adding: It was very forceful and very painful…… There was blood everywhere.’
During their first encounter on April 21, Bauer, she claimed, ‘put me on my stomach and grabbed my hair which was 22 inches long at the time, and he wrapped it round my neck and applied pressure.
‘When I woke up, I was very confused – he was having anal sex with me,’ she added.
Asked if Bauer had asked her permission to have anal sex, she responded ‘No.’
‘Every time I moved I felt shooting pains in my anus,’ she went on. ‘And there was blood. Everything was torn.’
When she asked how long she had been unconscious, he allegedly said three or four seconds.
Despite the pain of her first sexual experience with Bauer, Ms. Hill showed up at his house again around midnight on May 15.
Bauer’s lawyers maintain that he was encouraged to believe that she had enjoyed her earlier sex session because of messages she sent him saying ‘Choke me out…..Never been more turned on in my life…Give me all the pain.’
She even responded, ‘Yes, yes, yes,’ when Bauer asked her, ‘Slaps in the face?’ the court heard.
DailyMail.com revealed in July that Hill admitted she had to quit the Padres’ Pad Squad of ‘brand ambassadors’ because of her fling with Tatis Jr
When asked if she talked to Tatis, she replied: ‘He is king. Best sex OF MY LIFE’
When her attorney Lisa Helfend-Meyer asked her if she had meant those messages, Hill said: ‘No.’
And when she was asked why she sent them – and why she went back to visit Bauer after her first traumatic encounter with him – she said that she was anxious to see him again and ‘I was just telling him what he wanted to hear.’
Hill and Bauer came face to face for the first time on Monday – six weeks after she claimed was granted a restraining order against him.
Bauer, who earns $34million a year, dressed in a blue suit with cream shirt and maroon tie as he sat before Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman, opposite from his 27-year-old alleged victim, who was in a black pantsuit.
The hearing started with a defeat for 30-year-old athlete when the judge denied his lawyers’ motion for the restraining order to be dismissed. Bauer insists that their sex sessions were consensual.
Helfend-Meyer started the hearing by telling the court: ‘Trevor Bauer committed domestic violence, abuse and sexual abuse on Ms. Hill.
‘She had learned to trust Trevor, and it led to serious harm to her.
‘A normal person does not freely consent to abuse of himself, likely to produce great bodily harm.’
Helfend-Meyer described Hill – the daughter of a baseball coach and herself a lifelong baseball fan – as a recovering alcoholic who is ‘vulnerable, scared and fragile.’

Helfend-Meyer described her client (pictured taking the stand Monday) as ‘vulnerable’ and the ‘perfect victim for Trevor Bauer’
‘She was the perfect victim for Trevor Bauer,’ she added.
Hill was watching Bauer pitch in his game against the Padres on TV at her home in San Diego when she tagged him in a post, not expecting him to respond, the court heard.
But he replied shortly after the game ended and the two began communicating on social media.
Hill then drove the 130 miles to visit Bauer at his Pasadena home on April 21 this year and the two chatted for several hours, during which Bauer told her his three rules of dating: You can’t have feelings for the other; you can’t post on social media when together; you can still sleep with others, Helfend-Meyer told the court.
They ended up in bed where Bauer became ‘aggressive’ she said.
‘Trevor asked if she had ever been choked during sex before. She said yes, even though she hadn’t…..
‘He put his fingers down her throat. She asked him to stop and he did.
He wrapped her hair around her neck and choked her out. She became unconscious.’
And when Hill came to: ‘Bauer was having anal sex with her,’ said Helfend-Meyer.
‘The anal sex was very painful. She asked him to stop and he did…….She was bleeding from her anus – she was barely able to walk.’
At their next sexual encounter, again at his Pasadena home, on May 15.
Bauer choked her out, the court heard. ‘She was having a hard time breathing…she was disoriented,’ said the attorney.
‘He began hitting her in the face repeatedly. He punched her on the side of the face with his closed fist.
Bauer’s attorneys accuse the woman of pursuing the athlete for financial gain in the hopes of reaching a settlement. In a message included in their court filing, the woman allegedly wrote: ‘Ill have my NDA signed and sealed, and my feelings button switched off, dont worry’ (above)
Previous messages released in court filings reveal Hill telling her cousin that her face was ‘f***ed up’
‘She was terrified. She was like rag doll. She could not move. She could taste blood in her mouth.
‘Then he spread her legs to expose her vagina and began punching her in the vagina. She felt more pain than she had never felt before.
‘He then flipped her over on her stomach and started scratching her back. She was scared that he was going to hit her again.
‘He asked her if she had ever been hit before and she said she hadn’t. Then, very matter-of-factly, he took a shower.’
When she returned home, Hill ‘threw up violently and had severe headaches’, and friends convinced her to go to a hospital for treatment, the court was told.
Hill subsequently drove to Pasadena to report the incidents and police there are still investigating, along with Major League Baseball.
After Hill arrived at his house for a second time May 15, she told the court they first talked for a while.
‘He was amped up about pitching that night,’ she said.
Hill told how Bauer made several personal revelations to her – including how his girlfriend when he was at UCLA left him for another woman, and how he had once accidentally broken the nose of a former girlfriend.
They ended up in bed again, and this time, Bauer asked her to come up with a ‘safe word’ to call out if she was uncomfortable with anything he was doing, she said.
She had never been asked that before so she gave him the words ‘Daddy Issues’, ‘as a joke’ which they both laughed at.
After sex started, ‘He slapped me in the face,’ said Hill – who admitted the slapping was ‘consensual.’ But she added, what came after, was not.
‘He flipped me over on my stomach and he took my hair and wrapped it around my neck. It was very tight – I couldn’t breathe.’
Hill shared pictures of her injuries with her cousin over text messages
Hill described their encounters as ‘consensual’ but said Bauer ‘took it too far’ by leaving her with black eyes, according to text messages released by his attorneys on Tuesday
Bauer, she said, was still having vaginal sex with her from behind and she passed out for a few seconds.
When she regained consciousness: ‘He flipped me back over on my back. she resumed having sex with me vaginally – that’s when he started closed-fist punching me in my face.
‘He hit me first on the left side of my jaw. And he punched me ln both cheek bones and the left side of my head.
‘I had never been punched in the face before – I went into shock and I felt like my soul left my body.
‘It was so startling. He is very strong. My lip split open and I could taste the blood.’
Hill, dabbing away tears, said that Bauer – who sat in court today showing no reaction to her testimony and occasionally taking notes – flipped her on her stomach, started having sex with her again and wrapped her hair around her neck to choke her out once more.’
‘I was like a rag doll,’ she said.
When asked why she didn’t call out her safe word, she said: ‘I couldn’t get a word out. I froze. It was like I wasn’t a human being.’
Hill – who told the court that she had never agreed to – or even agreed to being punched in the face – went on to recount how Bauer rolled her on to her back and spread her legs, exposing her vagina.
Bauer, 30, won the National League Cy Young Award as a member of the Cincinnati Reds last April. He is now on paid leave following the allegations
‘He started punching my vagina closed fist. The pain was excruciating. I tried to say the safe word and all I could get out was ‘Daddy.”
It was enough to make Bauer stop. He then lay on top of her and asked if she was okay, she recalled.
She was not okay, she told the court. ‘Every part of my body was shaking. I could feel every inch of my face burning.’
Bauer’s reaction she said, was to tell her, ‘You have a couple of welts – I need to be more careful when I hit you.’
Hill added that the ball player – for whom she used the nickname Poppy – ‘made me feel like it was my fault, that I was asking for it by saying things to me like, ‘I would never do this to you if it wasn’t sexual.’
While Bauer was in the shower, she took cell phone pictures of her face, showing her injuries.
She claimed she didn’t want him to see her looking in the mirror because she was ‘scared’ of his reaction.
Earlier in Monday’s hearing, Bauer’s legal team suggested that those photos – circulated by Hill’s attorneys – have been doctored and made to look like Hill’s injuries are worse than they are.
But Helfend-Meyer denied the claim, insisting that the photos have ‘not been altered in any way.’
