Baker talks his way into Yankee Stadium

NEW YORK -- With the Reds making their first trip to the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Friday, manager Dusty Baker had an interesting experience upon his arrival.

"It's hard to get in this bad boy," Baker said. "Some guy asked, 'Hey, can I help you?' I was in the front trying to get in. I said I was here for the game. He told me, 'The gates aren't open yet.' I told him, 'I'm the manager.' He was like, 'Of what?' I said, 'Of the baseball team.' He said, 'What's your name?' I said, 'Dusty Baker.' He still didn't know me. Another guy came over and recognized me."
