Dusty Baker hits a home run in this Take 5 interview, which you can watch above.

The former slugging outfielder and manager of four Major League Baseball teams, including the San Francisco Giants, offers his views on:

  • The likelihood that Barry Bonds, baseball’s all-time home run king, will overcome his Steroids Era stigma and be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
  • Attempts to speed up baseball’s pace of play.
  • The time that the Giants’ J.T. Snow snatched up Baker’s then bat-boy son, Darren, at home plate in a World Series game.
  • How to increase the participation of blacks and other minorities in baseball.
  • His future plans, which include growing wine grapes and watching his son, Darren, play baseball at Cal Berkeley.
