Game 1 note:
Dusty Baker made his Major League debut with the Braves on September 7, 1968, in a game against the Astros. Now he’s going to be managing the Astros in the 2021 World Series against the Braves. Hang around long enough, and it all goes and comes around.— Anthony Castrovince (@castrovince) October 24, 2021
Here’s the boxscore from that game, won 6-3 by Houston in 10 innings. Dusty Baker’s debut was as a pinch-hitter for future Hall of Famer Phil Niekro in the seventh. He grounded out. Three other future MLB managers played in that game: Joe Torre, Felipe Alou and Doug Rader.
