Henry Stephen Baker (26 December 1904 – 7 November 1926) was an Australian-born New Zealand cricketer who played for Otago. He was born in Melbourne and died in Dunedin.

Baker made a single first-class appearance for the side, during the 1925-26 season, against Canterbury. From the lower-middle order, Baker scored 2 runs in the first innings in which he batted, and a duck in the second, as Otago lost the match by an innings margin.

He lived in the Dunedin suburb of Kensington, and worked as a factory hand. He died at the age of 21, less than 12 months after his only first-class appearance. He drowned while swimming off Tomahawk beach in Dunedin.[1]
