Finally winning his first World Championship as a manager in 2022, the Astros' popular leader has dabbled in vastly different enterprises for years! He's also in biz with a hit-making R&B musician!
Congratulations Brad! As you know, I was confused about which league the Astros are in, but hey, you're happy so I'm happy! Living in SF, I recall that Dusty Baker used to manage here, and SF won a couple of world series, but I guess the two things didn't coincide. Persistence can pay off!
What a great tribute to Dusty! And I’m so happy for him as one of the great ambassadors for the sport and an amazing person too. I got to meet him at an event in San Francisco when he was managing the Giants and he was as warm and attentive to the nobodies like me as the wealthy bigwigs at the venue. Also, growing up in LA, I got to see him play for the Dodgers as a kid. He was one of my favorite players for years, even after I would come to hate the Dodgers (long story that I will one day turn into an Earworm post!).
Really happy for Dusty Baker and his WS win. Happy for you, Brad, I guess 😍 because you’re the only Astros partisan I know. I mean, by the end, even fans of my Mets were rooting for rival Phillies, if only for the underdog storyline. (Not rooting hard, though.) But everyone in baseball respects Dusty Baker, and this vineyard is an angle most of us did not know. So good job!
