World Series 2021: For 24th time as a manager, Houston Astros' Dusty Baker heads home without a title

HOUSTON -- When the final out was recorded in Game 6 of the 2021 World Series, Dusty Baker's 24th year as a big league manager ended in the same way as the previous 23 -- with another team winning the season's last game.

Afterward, the Houston Astros' manager sat in the dugout and took a moment to jot down one more note on the pad in front of him. He capped his pen, allowed himself to look up just long enough to see the Braves leap into each other's arms on his field, and then ducked into the tunnel and headed for the clubhouse.
