Councillor Baker secured 1,066 votes, ahead of Labour's Jonathan Timbers who attracted 896 votes and Conservative Christopher Pearson with 454 votes.
The by-election follows the resignation of Lib Dem councillor Keith Hutson.
A total of 2,565 votes were cast, a turnout of 29%.
The result leaves Calderdale council with 20 Labour councillors, 17 Conservatives, 12 Lib Dems and two Independents.
