While the rest of the country will spend the weekend after the NFC and AFC conference championship games ignoring the Pro Bowl and looking forward to Super Bowl 50, Giants fans in central New Jersey will have a chance to revisit better times with two members of past Super Bowl winners.
The Holbrook Little League will be he hosting former Giants Eric Dorsey and Stephen Baker in a Meet and Greet Super Saturday event at the Little League facility at 366 Bartley Road in Jackson on Saturday, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m. until noon.
Tickets to the picture and autograph session will be $10 per person and will be on sale at the Little League facility on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. until noon. Raffle tickets for a chance to eat lunch with Dorsey and Baker will be available for $5 each at the event.
Dorsey, a defensive end out of Notre Dame, was a first-round draft pick of the Giants in 1986 and played his entire seven-year NFL career with the team. He appeared in two Super Bowls, registering a sack as a rookie in the Giants’ 39-20 win over Denver in Super Bowl XXI and starting 11 regular season games for the 1990 team that beat Buffalo in Super Bowl XXV.
Dorsey was forced to retire during the 1993 preseason at age 29 because of a degenerative left hip that eventually needed to be replaced. Since 2007 he has been a personal trainer with TEST Sports Clubs in Martinsville.
The 5-foot-8-inch Baker, nicknamed “The Touchdown Maker,” played his entire six-year career with the Giants. After playing college football at Fresno State, he was selected by the Giants in the third round of the 1987 draft. In 1988 he set career highs with 40 receptions and seven touchdowns, and he caught a touchdown pass in the Giants’ 20-19 win over Buffalo in the Super Bowl following the 1990 season.
Baker finished his career with 141 receptions for 2,587 yards and 21 touchdowns. After his playing career, he spent 15 years as a permanent substitute teacher at the James J. Flynn Elementary School in Perth Amboy.
