(Continued)

CINCINNATI —

Baker was still in a Chicago hospital bed when the Reds clinched at home on Sept. 22 — players toasted him in the clubhouse before spraying each other. He was in Cincinnati resting when Bailey threw his no-hitter in Pittsburgh.

He’ll get another ovation when he’s introduced on Tuesday night, though it’s nothing he’s anticipating.

“I didn’t think about getting a reception in San Francisco,” the 63-year-old manager said. “I’m just doing my job.”
