Through Nightengale, Baker stated, “I’m very grateful and thankful to Jim Crane and the Houston Astros for giving me this opportunity, and to win a championship.” They seemed to be doing well for me, and I seemed to be doing well for them. The fact that Jim has been completely open and truthful with me about everything is something I truly value.

According to Nightengale, Baker stated, “I’ve still got a lot to offer; baseball has been in my life.” “I know a lot more about this game than people who have never played it,” the player said.

In 2024, the Astros will need to find a new manager, but Baker had great success during his time in charge. At his press conference on Thursday, it will be a celebration of his career.
