Dusty Baker Ruins Another Team

According to the San Fransisco Chronicle, Dusty Baker will be coaching his son Darren’s 10 and under traveling team this weekend as a fill-in coach that is located near his California home.  Hopefully they have strict pitch count limits.

“I am so shocked he agreed to do it. Darren sort of persuaded him,” Melissa Baker said. “The funny thing is that Dusty just can’t get over the goofing around that still goes on with these 9- and 10-year-olds. He wants them to always hustle and stay focused.

“He didn’t think it would be this soon. He thought he would have to wait until he was retired to coach Darren. That’s what he wants to do when he’s out of the game.”

No word if Corey Patterson will be leading off or not.

Baker is also appearing as a guest commentator on the “Tirico & Van Pelt” show on ESPN radio during the playoffs.  I only caught the very end of today’s discussion, but he basically said everything any normal manager or coach would say about every team remaining in the playoffs.  In other words: clogging bases=bad, “The Dodger way”=good
