Before he was one of the winningest managers in MLB history, Dusty Baker was a well-rounded outfielder who played nearly 20 seasons in Major League Baseball.

He was drafted by Atlanta in 1967, and developed into a solid hitter on the Braves of the early 70's. Baker was a witness to history in 1974, standing on deck as Hank Aaron hit home run number 715 to surpass Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list.

After his trade to the Dodgers prior to the 1976 season, Baker saw a lot of his career accomplishments come while he was in Dodger Blue. He won two Silver Sluggers and a Gold Glove, an NLCS MVP, and a World Series title before retiring and later becoming a manager.

In the sixteen seasons he spent with Atlanta and LA, Baker hit more than 200 home runs, more than 120 stolen bases, and one potential action that changed sports celebration history.
