Dusty Baker will mark the 45th anniversary of his major league debut with the Braves this coming September. It's been a great baseball life for the Southern California native, who made history on the 1977 Dodgers when he was one of those who made it the first team ever with four players hitting 30 or more home runs. While sabermetricians aren't keen on his strategies, he's won division titles managing Giants, Cubs and Reds. I snapped this photo during batting practice in June 2012 at Citi Field in New York.
