Ice hockey and Football star from a wealthy family that joined the armed forces as an escape in 1916. Was eventually deployed to France where he got four kills as a pilot and eventually got his own sqaudron. On December 21, 1918 Baker received orders to return home. He took a final flight in a recently fixed plane, but the engine cut out when he was in the air and he crashed.
