About her husband Dusty

Johnnie B. Baker Jr. was born on June 15, 1949, in Riverside, California, United States

He is a former baseball player and current baseball manager of the Houston Astros since 2020, who has been competing in Major League Baseball

He retired at the age of 37 in 1986 as a player. He has won the World Series both as a player (1981) and manager (2022). 

The last time he played as a player was for Oakland Athletics. Dusty even served in the Marine Corps Reserve as a mechanic in motor transport from 1968 to 1974

50 plus year journey was remarkable for Dusty

Dusty shared in an interview that his journey from baseball player to manager was remarkable. 

He said if this whole journey had been written before, he would think about his childhood, think about coming as a young man, and think about the different scenarios that have been in his life to sort of prepare himself for this journey. 

He added he didn’t know it was a journey, but he was just living his life, and when he looks back today, he realizes it was a journey. 

Definition of baseball by Dusty

Dusty said in an interview that baseball is the same game but entirely different with the new rule. 

He added it is friendly now as when he was talking to baseball player Larry Christenson, he said this is a friendly game, but when he met baseball pitcher Steve Carlton, no, it wasn’t a friendly. 

Bonding with Houston Astros and taking them back to the World Series

When Dusty entered Astros, he felt like a substitute teacher, as he was an outsider, but in 2021, the team made him feel like he was one of them, and they were always definitely one of him. 

Dusty said in an interview that everybody tells teamwork and talks about a team, but it’s a feeling that you get for each other, cry for each other, and pull for each other. 

Teaming was something that cannot be taken away or described, and it never happens in another industry for Dusty other than sports because you don’t get such a bond in the business world.
