Baker, 73, won his first title in his 25th season as a major league manager Saturday night when the Astros beat Philadelphia in six games.

He became the oldest manager to win a World Series in his third trip as a manager to the Fall Classic. As a player he went three times with the Dodgers, winning it all in 1981.

When pressed about his contract status and the future over the weekend, Baker interjected and said things weren’t uncertain on his end.

"I just want to live. Live and everything will be taken care of," he told The Associated Press. "I ain’t worried about none of that. I’m just going to enjoy today and I’m sure it will be taken care of."
