Houston Astros take Grapefruit League approach for final series
Dusty Baker has a contact for just about any circumstance. His latest is Dave Stewart, a World Series Most Valuable Player suspended for 10 days due to a natural disaster.
Stewart’s Oakland A’s weathered the Bay Area earthquake to complete a sweep of the San Francisco Giants in 1989. Baker, then the Giants’ batting coach, remarked on how fresher and “more prepared” than San Francisco after the 10-day layoff.
