Meet Dusty Baker Mother Christine Baker
Dusty Baker's mother, Christine Baker, was a teacher and a counselor. Following her passion for touring, she owned a Tourist Agency.
His mother always encouraged his love of sports by purchasing him a baseball bat and ball, which he used to play with daily. Christine called him "dusty" since he frequently played in the mud.
At Sacramento State University, Christine began her professional career in teaching and counseling. His mother also modeled for a while. After discovering her love for traveling, she went on to own a travel agency and worked as an advisor at Vacaville State Prison. Christine was a tour guide for trips to the Caribbean and Europe.
As a teacher, she always encouraged kids to ask questions. She also taught them to vote, to know their history, to know who paid the dues, and to speak up for what was right.
"Pick your battles, but likewise, don't get outraged about everything. Defend everyone who is abused."
Nationals manager Dusty talks about how Christine Baker taught him how to walk a catwalk and become the person he is today early on in his brief time in Washington.
Baker claimed that his mother phoned him after games to reprimand him for unacceptable behavior after he was shown enthusiastically shouting obscenities on TV following a major hit by Bryce Harper.
