Former AFL Commissioner Baker Named Pro Football HOF President

Former AFL Commissioner David Baker is returning to the football world as the sixth President & Exec Dir of the Pro Football HOF. Baker will be based at the HOF in Canton, Ohio, and will begin his new job on Monday. Baker succeeds Stephen Parry, who is retiring after more than seven years. “The mission statement is to honor the legends of the game, preserve the storied history of the game, and promote the values that have made football such a big part of American culture,” Baker said.

For the last four years, Baker has been a partner in Union Village, a giant healthcare project outside of Las Vegas. He was AFL Commissioner from '96-'08.
