Some know him for — possibly — having a hand in the world's first high five.
Others know him as the ultimate player's-manager. But Wednesday, Dusty Baker was just another person sending a baseball legend off in the most appropriate fashion.
The Nationals manager, Baker, chose to shy away from the 'up-high' when he met with Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, prior to the night's matchup between the two clubs.
Instead, he embraced Scully, a broadcasting icon, with an emotional hug.

You likely know Scully as the man who's endured nearly seven decades in the Dodger's booth —67 years to be exact — dating back to the days when Brooklyn was home.
What you may not have known, though, is that Scully's called quite a few games in which Baker actually participated ... as a player.
Baker spent eight seasons as a Dodger outfielder from 1976-1983, winning a World Series title along the way.
Although, for now, we'll forget about the fact Dusty batted a putrid .167 during that 1981 postseason run.
So, what exactly provoked the heartwarming moment between Baker and Scully?
It may be the strong relationship built between the two over countless years spent as ambassadors for America's pastime.
Though, it's likely a touching act from one legend to another, as Dusty pays his respects to the man who will call the 2016 season his last in a major league booth.
