The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.
The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.
He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.
The team wrote in a letter saying “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”
Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.
