Dusty Baker

July 3, 2014

Where is Dusty Baker today?  The 64-year old former Reds manager is living in California, and for the first time in many years is out of baseball.  He came into the National League in 1967 and for 45 of the next 47 years he was connected in one way or another with baseball.  He started out as a player with the Dodgers and ended when he was fired by the Cincinnati Reds after last season.

When asked by a reporter recently, Baker stated “I guess I take a break from baseball every 20 years or so.”  He still wants to get back into baseball, and it is a good bet that if someone is fired during this season he will be one of the leading candidates to replace that manager.  In the meantime, he is working in the online computer field.  He turned down a few opportunities to appear on shows like MLB Today and ESPN.

The company he is working for is called Legacy Harbor.  I tried to find out just what this online business does, but the only thing I found  is that they try to help community organizations recruit members to help inner city projects.  Baker is very personable, and I suppose in areas like Oakland where Baker has spent a lot of time, he would appeal to those inner city youth groups.  It is a good bet that Dusty will get back into baseball before very long.
