Dusty Baker has a signature reaction to being a World Series 1 game
Dusty Baker is one game away with the Houston Astros from winning his first World Series and the manager’s reaction was just to the mark.
Houston Astros Coach dusty baker is one win away from something he’s never accomplished in his illustrious MLB career. If the American League champions can pull off a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in one of Houston’s two remaining games, Baker will win the first World Series of his career.
Yes, the franchise reclaimed a ring in the cheating scandal-tainted 2017 run, but Baker wasn’t the manager at the time. And although it has come close on several occasions, it has never reached that peak. Moreover, Baker is also still at stake in terms of his contract with the club as he hasn’t received an extension yet.
Is Baker feeling all that pressure? Always cool, calm and collected, Baker takes things day by day.
Dusty Baker isn’t fazed that Astros are one game away from winning their first World Series
Speaking to the media and courtesy of Mark Berman with FOX 26, Baker had this to say about being one game away from his first World Series and his future with the Astros:
“You can’t worry about things that are out of your control… I’ve always thought that when I’m supposed to win, I’m going to win and then when I’m supposed to sign a contract, I’ll sign.”

It’s rare in the modern era of baseball, even with a more old school guy like Baker, to see that kind of mentality and it’s definitely refreshing. He takes the games and the World Series one day at a time and come what may.
The hope is that he can pass that mentality on to his team, a more than talented group of Astros to get out there, have fun, and get the win needed to take Dusty Baker to his first World Series.
