Dusty Baker, 74, who won 2,083 games in 26 seasons in Major League Baseball, is expected to retire as a manager after the 2023 American League Championship Series (ALCS) loss.
USA Today reported on Baker’s departure following the conclusion of the ALCS on Thursday. That this season is his final year in Houston.
This is Baker’s opinion, not the club’s. Houston and Baker signed a one-year contract through the end of the season. There are no remaining contractual terms.
This means that Baker has not yet officially announced his retirement, but he has made it clear that this will be his last year in Houston.
Baker was born in 1949 and will be 75 years old in 2024. He was 71 years old when he returned to Houston in 2020.메이저놀이터
It is considered highly unlikely that Baker will continue his major league managerial career with another team. This means retirement.
Baker began his managerial career in 1993 with the San Francisco Giants, followed by stints with the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Washington, and Houston.
He hadn’t won a World Series until leading Washington, but last year, in his 25th year as a major league manager and third season with Houston, he won his first championship.
In 26 seasons, he has a record of 2183 wins, 1862 losses, a .540 winning percentage, and one World Series championship. He won the National League Manager’s Award in 1993, 1997, and 2000.
A managerial career that virtually guaranteed him a spot in the Hall of Fame, but a fourth straight home-field loss in the ALCS, likely his last.
