Bill Baker played junior football with the Regina Rams while still eligible for high school competition. For four years, Baker was a first team, all-star player at Otterbein College in Ohio.

Baker's credo was: "Your opponents are only as tough as you let them be". Throughout his 174 game career "The Undertaker" was known for his ferocious pass rush. A Baker forearm to the head was greatly respected by opposing quarterbacks who came within range.

Bill Baker is also a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders Plaza of Honour.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1994 as a player.
