Dusty Baker Becomes The Third Black Manager To Win A World Series

When Dusty Baker helped the Houston Astros capture a championship on Saturday night, he became only the third Black manager in MLB history to lead a team to a championship. The 73-year-old, who has been chasing the title for 25 years, met with reporters before the game and answered questions about what it would mean to accomplish such a rare feat.

“I don’t think about being an African American manager because I look in the mirror every day and I know what I am,” Baker said according to KHOU 11. “You know what I’m saying? I do know that there’s certain pressure from a lot of people that are pulling for me, especially people of color, and that part I do feel. I hear it every day… and so I feel that I’ve been chosen for this.”
