Dusty Baker has been one of the game’s most successful managers for several years.
However, he was missing one piece, that being a World Series championship.
Now, Baker can add that to his Hall of Fame resume, having led the Houston Astros to their second World Series title in six years.
But Baker is on another elite list that could very well help his Hall of Fame case.
Of managers with the most 90+ win seasons in the history of baseball, Baker is tied for third on the list with Terry Francona and Joe Torre at 12, which has him behind only Bobby Cox (15) and Tony La Russa (13).

Baker’s Case For Cooperstown
Baker has certainly had a legendary managerial career.
While he was missing the World Series ring, he still had put together a solid resume for the Hall of Fame.
But Baker is part of an elite list of managers who have won 90 or more games multiple times during their storied careers.
Baker and Francona were the only two on the list who have yet to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Now that Baker has a World Series ring to go with it, it might be time to consider him for the Hall of Fame.
He’s managed several great teams, including this year’s Astros and finally earned his first World Series ring as a manager.
Will Baker be inducted into the Hall of Fame when his career is over?
