Even though he had retired, Mr. Baker continued to remain active in basketball. In 1982-1983, he organized the Beltway Classic that featured high school teams from Baltimore and Washington.
He also evaluated game officials for the Atlantic Coast Conference for six years.
"I never missed a game at College Park," he told The Baltimore Sun in a 1986 article.
In 1986, he returned to coaching at Park School, where he also taught basketball to boys in fifth through eighth grades for one season.
"I love working with youngsters, and I will get just as big a charge out of winning from Nottingham as from Xavier University," said Mr. Baker in the 1986 interview.
Mr. Baker had been inducted into the Towson Catholic Athletic Hall of Fame, the University of Baltimore Hall of Fame and the Wheeling Jesuit University Athletic Hall of Fame.
After his coaching career ended at Park, Mr. Baker scouted for the NBA's Washington Wizards for six years.
In 1997, he established the Five-Star Baltimore Basketball Camp, which is now being directed by one of his sons.
"His camps were one of the best in the country," said Mr. Bagli.
Last year, a contingent of players who Mr. Baker had coached during the 1960s at the University of Baltimore visited him at the nursing home in Easton.
"His players loved him and he kept in touch with those guys from way back," said Mr. Bagli.
Mr. Baker was also famous for his annual NCAA tip-off dinners, where he would analyze and make predictions about the coming tournament.
"He dreams all the time and he talks in his sleep," his wife of 49 years, the former Connie Peddicord, said in an interview in 2012 with Press Box. "He's always coaching in his dreams."
The former longtime Cockeysville resident, who had moved to Easton 13 years ago, was a communicant of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, 100 Church Lane, Cockeysville, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Thursday.
In addition to his wife, Mr. Baker is survived by three sons, Stephen Baker and Gregory Baker, both of Baltimore, and Nicholas Baker of Richmond, Va.; a sister, Jeannette Rembach of Ocean Pines; and five grandchildren.
