Dusty Baker Joins Cubs

Sponsored by:

Dusty Baker is moving to Chicago.

The former San Francisco Giants manager is taking on the same job at the Chicago Cubs — and accepting one of baseball´s most challenging assignments.

Baker takes over baseball´s long-time losers less than a month after leading the Giants to the World Series.

He agreed to a four-year contract, a deal thought to be worth between $14 million and $16 million.

Baker is a three-time National League Manager of the Year.

He spent ten seasons with the Giants before leaving last week following differences with San Francisco owner Peter Magowan.
