Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker hilariously reveals he received a lucky message from his ‘homeboy’ Snoop Dogg ahead of World Series Game One against the Phillies
Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker said he had received calls from several of his “homeboys and homegirls,” including legendary rapper and entertainer Snoop Dogg.
Baker revealed that Snoop Dogg had wished him luck ahead of the Astros’ World Series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
The 73-year-old Astros manager was asked if he was able to share any of the best messages or interactions he’s received to wish him the best of luck.

He replied: ‘Yeah, just my homeboys, some homegirls. Let’s see, Snoop Dogg, you know some rappers, local guys, coaches I had, Bill Cosby, just other people I’ve known in my life.”
Baker made his Major League debut as a player in 1968 before playing for 19 seasons during the height of Cosby’s fame.
He has referred to the friendship between the duo several times during his 25-year management career.
This is despite the comedian’s fall from fame after he was first charged with sexual assault in 2014.

After years of litigation, Cosby was convicted of three felonies for aggravated indecent assault.
He was eventually sentenced to three to 10 years in prison by Pennsylvania judge Steven T. O’Neill, who called the comedian a “sexually violent predator.”
The conviction was eventually overturned in June 2021 and Cosby was released from prison the same day. However, Cosby was convicted of sexual acts earlier this year.
The Astros faced the Phillies in Game One of the World Series in Houston on Friday-evening.
