There’s a new Major League Baseball manager in the exclusive 2,000-win club.

Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker reached the milestone after his team secured a 4-0 win on Tuesday against the Seattle Mariners.

Baker joins 11 other managers who have hit this mark during their respective careers, and 10 of them have been enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The only other one is former San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy, who retired after the 2019 season.

After an 18-year career as a player that included stints with the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, Giants and Oakland Athletics, Baker began life as a manager in 1993 with the Giants, a season in which he won NL Manager of the Year.

Baker also was the manager of the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals before joining the Astros in 2020. Houston’s record in 2022 is currently 13-11.
