Baker left the organization following the 2002 season, when he led the Giants to the World Series. They lost the Fall Classic to the Angels in seven games. Baker managed the Giants for 10 seasons (1993-2002), leading them to winning records in seven of those years.

Baker proceeded to manage the Cubs, Reds and Nationals after leaving the Giants, reaching the postseason at least once with each team.
