Dusty Baker’s Son to Pursue College Baseball Career

You might recall in the 2002 World Series when San Francisco Giants base-runner J. T. Snow, who had just scored a run, snatched the Giants’ batboy from the jaws of injury when he picked up the young boy who was attempting to retrieve a bat near home plate.  But, there was a play still going on, with another Giants runner having rounded third and was headed toward a close play at home plate, including a possible collision with the Anaheim Angels catcher. Snow’s quick reaction likely saved the batboy from being injured.

Well, that young batboy 14 years ago, Darren Baker, is now about to start his college baseball career, having signed to play with the University of California.  He is the son of Dusty Baker, the current manager of the Washington Nationals.  Dusty was the manager of the Giants in 2002.
