Baker graduated through the Thirds to make his debut in 1953 but then left the club midway through 1954 to join Boolarra before returning in 1955.
A clearance hitch before Round 1, 1955 almost derailed his second Demon debut, with Melbourne officials having to travel to Boolarra the night before the game to organised a clearance.
Despite playing in six straight wins that year it was Baker's last year in VFL football and he was cleared to SANFL side North Adelaide for 1956.
May not have played any games with North Adelaide.
