Astros’ Dusty Baker plans to retire following ALCS loss: report

Dusty Baker is reportedly ready to call it a career.

The Athletic says the 74-year-old has told people within the last week that 2023 would be his final season as a manager.

Baker’s Houston Astros lost the American League Championship Series in seven games to their AL West rival Texas Rangers on Monday night – it was the franchise’s seventh-consecutive LCS, tying an MLB record set by the Atlanta Braves in the 1990s.

The three-time Manager of the Year owns a career record of 2,183-1,862, and is one of 12 managers to rack up 2,000 wins – he currently ranks seventh all-time, with all six ahead of him, and the two managers immediately behind him, in the Hall of Fame.

He is the only manager to lead five different teams to division titles.
