Former Cubs skipper Dusty Baker tells the Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein there’s more to his post-managerial career than deep sea fishing trips with Ronnie Lott.
“It’s different now. I park in the media lot, not the players’ or managers’ lot. And now that I travel commercial, I can appreciate how it was. You carry your own bags and have to pay an extra 100 bucks if they’re too heavy. I have size 13s, so I can get up over 100 pounds in a hurry. I bring five or six or seven pairs of shoes with me. As a kid, I had only one pair of dress shoes and tennis shoes. Now I don’t like wearing the same pair two days in a row.”
Hot Shit College Student replies, “I’d love to see Dusty and Todd Jones collaborate on a bag packing project.”
