Happy # 68 Dusty Baker, great player and manager


We remember Dusty Baker who was born on this day in 1949 in Riverside, California.

Baker is a rare breed:   a very good player who became a very good manager.

As a player, we remember his bat:  .278 average, 242 HR, 1,013 RBI, 1,981 hits over 2,039 games with the Braves, Dodgers and a bit with the A's at the end.      He played with the LA Dodgers in their 1977-81 championship run.

As a manager, he's won over 1,800 games, the 2002 NL pennant and several division titles with the Giants, Cubs, Reds and currently the Nationals.

Great player and manager.
