Don Baylor, who had been seeking a managerial breakthrough the past four years, found the opening he was looking for yesterday in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.The ex-Oriole, whose hard-nosed reputation preceded him at seven major-league stops, was introduced as the first manager of the expansion Colorado Rockies at a late afternoon news conference in Denver."To me this is a thrill, a chance to build something from scratch," said Baylor. "There will be a lot of young players, and I want to teach them how to win."
