‘My First Time’ – Dusty Baker – September 7, 1968

The setting: Atlanta, Georgia.  Fulton County Stadium

From Baker – “My minor legaue manager told me the good news, just after we had won the championship game, and I called home collect.  I’d had a good year in the low minors, but that was a heck of a jump, being nineteen years old and going from Greenwood in the Western Carolinas league up o Atlanta.”

The box score – Astros 6, Braves 3(10 Innings).  0-for-1 as a pinch hitter.
