A former sportswriter for the Boston Herald, Baker had found a great retirement gig covering high school sports for LexMedia. On Monday afternoon, he dropped by the LexMedia headquarters at Avalon Lexington Hills to do some editing of a recent Lexington High School softball game against Burlington High.
