The 13 1/2-year-old son of Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker is just fine with it, because these days he's a second baseman who appreciates watching the games to learn. He does plan to bat boy for a few games in 2013 after turning the required 14 on Feb. 11.
Baker rooted for Washington to win on the season's final day so the Reds would be the NL's No. 2 seed and open the best-of-five playoffs at San Francisco. It was here in October 2002 when the toddler ran out to retrieve the bat of his favorite player - Kenny Lofton.
