Dusty Baker has funny way of pumping himself up for World Series
© Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Dusty Baker and the Astros are taking on the Atlanta Braves in the World Series.

Nineteen years after making his first World Series appearance as a manager, Dusty Baker is back, and he is planning for the occasion accordingly.

The Houston Astros manager told reporters on the eve of Game 1 that he listened to Tupac Shakur and Slim Thug that morning, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.

It is definitely a funny way for the 72-year-old to pump himself up for the World Series. Did he go for the chill vibes of “Picture Me Rollin’”? Was he embracing the Astros’ role as the villain by listening to “Me Against The World”? Or did Baker simply start blaring “Hit ‘Em Up” while visualizing the opposing Atlanta Braves? These are the real questions that we have heading into the series.

Of course, the veteran skipper Baker has always been a man of culture. After all, he is the proud owner of one of the flat-out coolest stories ever.
