REDS, DUSTY BAKER AGREE TO CONTRACT EXTENSION
Manager’s 2-Year Deal Runs Through 2012

            CINCINNATI – The National League Central Division champion Cincinnati Reds and field manager Dusty Baker have agreed to terms on a 2-year contract extension through the 2012 season.

            The announcement was made this afternoon at a Great American Ball Park press conference held prior to the team’s first Postseason workout by Reds President and Chief Executive Officer Bob Castellini and President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty.

            Baker, 61, is 243-243 in 3 seasons with the Reds and 1,405-1,284 in a 17-year Major League career that includes 4 division championships with 3 teams, including the San Francisco Giants (1997, 2000), Chicago Cubs (2003) and now the Reds. This season he became only the sixth manager in Major League history to win a division title with 3 teams, joining Davey Johnson, Tony LaRussa, Billy Martin, Lou Piniella and Joe Torre.

            With a 4-3 win on September at Mil, Baker became only the 25th manager in Major League history to record 1,400 career wins. The Reds clinched the 2010 National League Central Division championship with Tuesday’s 3-2 win vs the Houston Astros and earned their first playoff appearance since 1995.
