Baker was first drafted in 1967 by the Atlanta Braves straight out of high school but began playing professionally the following year. In his 16 years as a professional player, he spent time with the Braves, but also the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and Oakland Athletics. Baker hit his 30th homerun on the final day of the 1977 season, making it the Dodgers the first time in baseball’s history to have four hitters who had accomplished that feat.
