Baker played on the tour only a short time - from 2002 through 2005 and in a few autumn challengers in 2007. He won two challenger events in this time and reached a career best singles ranking of World No. 172, on November 15, 2004. He was coached by Ricardo Acuna.
Baker is currently serving as an assistant coach for the Belmont University men's tennis program.
In his first tour action since 2007, Baker entered an ITF Futures tournament in Pittsburgh in July 2011 as an unranked qualifier, qualified, and has won the tournament, all without dropping a set.
