Trace Lee "Tracy" Baker (November 7, 1891 – March 14, 1975) was a first baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Boston Red Sox. Baker batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Pendleton, Oregon, and studied at the University of Washington, where he played college baseball for the Huskies in 1910.[1]

Of the more than 16,000 players in major league history, Baker is also among the 900-plus players in the Elias Sports Bureau registry who got into only one game. He was 19 years old. Baker's one big-league game came on June 19, 1911. In his only plate appearance, he executed a sacrifice bunt. On the field he made four putouts without committing an error.
