Dusty Baker has officially announced his retirement after the Houston Astros were eliminated from playoff contention by the Texas Rangers just hours ago. The 74 year old has been in the game of baseball for 45 years. He has been respected and looked up to by everyone in the game.


Dusty Baker played 19 seasons in the league. Most of his career was in Atlanta and Los Angeles (NL) where he spent 16 years as well as stints in Oakland and San Francisco. Baker slashed .278/.347/.432 with 242 home runs in 2039 games played.


Moving onto his managerial career, Dusty spent 26 years as a manager. Spending 10 years in San Francisco with stints in Chicago (NL), Cincinnati, Washington, and finally Houston. Baker has made quite the resume for himself with two World Series rings and three Manager of the Year Awards.


Dusty Baker will undoubtedly be missed throughout the league. His energy and ability to always say the correct thing to reporters has always stood out. His talent on and off the field will give Dusty the one last accomplishment, Cooperstown. Where he, without a question, will end up.
