HOUSTON (AP) - Dusty Baker will get time in the spotlight back at Dodger Stadium next summer. The new Houston Astros manager will be invited to lead the American League in the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium on July 14, Major League Baseball said. Baker was hired by the Astros to replace AJ Hinch, who was suspended by MLB for the season on Jan. 13 for his role in the team's sign-stealing scheme, then was fired by Houston along with general manager Jeff Luhnow. Baker played for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1976-83, becoming a two-time All-Star.
