That's a shame....I've heard Dusty Baker is a really unique and cool dude.

I was up near Missoula, Montana fishing in Rock Creek several years back and I went into a little fly fishing store near Rock Creek and the owners were an old couple and talked about how Dusty Baker loved to fly fish and would stop in the store a few times a year and was super cool and about as unassuming as it gets.

Every time I see Dusty Baker I think of the old man walking around in the store talking store waving his hands around talking about Duuuusty Baker!

Who knows, the old guy might have been out of his gourd for years and regaled the next customer in the store with stories of Mickey Mantle stopping in a few times a year....and the Mick has been gone almost 20 years.
