Dusty Baker hits a home run in this Take 5 interview, which you can watch above.
The former slugging outfielder and manager of four Major League Baseball teams, including the San Francisco Giants, offers his views on:

  • The likelihood that Barry Bonds, baseball’s all-time home run king, will overcome his Steroids Era stigma and be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
  • Attempts to speed up baseball’s pace of play.
  • The time that the Giants’ J.T. Snow snatched up Baker’s then bat-boy son, Darren, at home plate in a World Series game.
  • How to increase the participation of blacks and other minorities in baseball.
  • His future plans, which include growing wine grapes and watching his son, Darren, play baseball at Cal Berkeley.

Curiosity drives David Taub. The award-winning journalist might be shy, but feels mighty with a recorder in his hand. He doesn't see it his job to "hold public officials accountable," but does see it to provide readers (and voters) the information needed to make intelligent choices. Taub has been honored with several writing awards from the California News Publishers Association. He's just happy to have his stories read. Joining GV Wire in 2016, Taub covers politics, government and elections, mainly in the Fresno/Clovis area. He also writes columns about local eateries (Appetite for Fresno), pro wrestling (Off the Bottom Rope), and media (Media Man). Prior to joining the online news source, Taub worked as a radio producer for KMJ and PowerTalk 96.7 in Fresno. He also worked as an assignment editor for KCOY-TV in Santa Maria, California, and KSEE-TV in Fresno. He has also worked behind the scenes for several sports broadcasts, including the NCAA basketball tournament, and the Super Bowl. When not spending time with his family, Taub loves to officially score Fresno Grizzlies games. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Taub is a die-hard Giants and 49ers fan. He graduated from the University of Michigan with dual degrees in communications and political science. Go Blue! You can contact David at 559-492-4037 or at Send an Email
