Fourteen Years After his First Brush With Baseball, Darren Baker is a Prospect

Darren Baker got his first national exposure in baseball as a three-years-old, when he was a batboy for the San Francisco Giants.  His father, Dusty Baker, was the manager of the Giants when they appeared in the 2002 World Series. In one of the games, Darren went out to pick up a bat at home plate, when a play was still in progress.  An alert J. T. Snow, who was in the Giants’ on-deck circle, had to sweep up the young Baker at home plate to avoid a collision with a Giants runner heading for home plate.

Fast forward to today. Darren is a potential major league prospect, having played well in recent Area Code games for amateurs.  He will be a high school senior for the 2017 season, and has already committed to the University of California.

Dusty is currently the manager of the Washington Nationals.
