Dusty Baker is headed back to the World Series, after the veteran manager’s Astros triumphed over the Red Sox in the ALCS.  This is the sixth time Baker has been part of the Fall Classic as a player (winning with the Dodgers in 1981), coach and manager, and he is the ninth manager to lead both an American League and a National League team to a league pennant.  While capping off his managerial career with a championship would seem like a storybook ending, Baker isn’t planning to retire even if the Astros win it all, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

Back in December, Baker was somewhat non-committal about his future with Houston, saying “Depends how I feel. Depends on how the team feels about me….You never know what changes are going to come about in life.”
