From his rookie debut with Hank Aaron’s Atlanta Braves, to his Baker Family Wines in California, MLB Network profiles former Reds manager Dusty Baker at 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Aaron, his mentor, is a major player in “MLB Presents: Dusty: A Baseball Journey.” Baker was on deck when Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s home record in 1974.

“The year I went through chasing the record, I think that really helped him get to where he is today,” Aaron says in the show.
