Dusty Baker reportedly says he's retiring after 26 seasons as MLB manager

Oct 26, 2023

Dusty Baker entered MLB as a 1967 draft pick, coaxed into signing by one Hank Aaron. More than five decades later, his time in MLB is coming to an end.

The Houston Astros manager is retiring after 26 seasons manning dugouts for the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals and Astros, he told USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

There were rumblings about Baker stepping down immediately after his Astros fell to the Texas Rangers in Game 7 of the ALCS, the end of his fourth season with the team. The 74-year-old reportedly wants to remain involved in baseball as an adviser, either with the Astros or a team close to his home in Sacramento, California.
