Arnold Ray "Bake" McBride, also nicknamed "Shake n' Bake", is a former Major League Baseball outfielder, known primarily as a member of the highly successful Philadelphia Phillies' teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s. He made his Major league debut for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1974, finishing the season with 173 base hits, 30 stolen bases, and a .309 batting average, and was named the National League's Rookie of the Year. On June 15, 1977, McBride was traded by the St. Louis Cardinals with Steve Waterbury to the Phillies for Tom Underwood, Dane Iorg, and Rick Bosetti.

On February 16, 1982, following several productive seasons with the Phillies, McBride was traded to the Cleveland Indians for Sid Monge. On November 7, 1983, he was granted free agency, but chose to retire from baseball.

Trivia

Noted for his speed, this helped him excel in other sports. According to Westminster College, he participated in baseball, basketball, and track during his two years at Westminster. Furthermore, he holds the school-record in the 200-meter dash.

He scored the winning run in a 25-inning game versus the New York Mets, advancing around the bases from first on a botched pick-off throwFact|date=July 2008.
