Dusty Baker: A Legend Finally Gets His Moment

From a New York Times story by Tyler Kepner headlined “A Legend Finally Gets His Moment”:

For all of Darren Baker’s life, his father had chased a championship. That was Dusty Baker’s job, from San Francisco to Chicago to Cincinnati to Washington to Houston, and he always did it quite well. He just never got the ending right.

The harshest came in 2002 when Darren was a three-year-old bat boy, bawling in his father’s arms in the dugout after Game 7 of the World Series in Anaheim, Calif. Now he is a minor league infielder — a peer, of sorts, with his famous father. They never talk about what’s been missing.
