Former El Paso Chihuahuas All-Star, Cody Decker, returns to Southwest University Park on Sunday, January 20,, 2019 to host two 2-hour indoor hitting clinics.
The first session will take place from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. for ages 10-12 and the second session is to take place from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. for ages 13-15 with check-in beginning one half hour prior to the start of each clinic. The cost is $35 per player and space is limited on a first come first served basis.
“The City of El Paso has given me so much in my career and life,” Decker said. “I cannot begin to say how excited I am to give something back and instruct some young players in the community that supported me so well.”
The clinic is part of a two-day weekend of festivities for Decker who will be a guest at Temple Mount Sinai’s showing of “Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel.” The movie recounts the rise of Team Israel into a contender at the World Baseball Classic.
Decker, who recently signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks, played with the Chihuahuas in 2014 and 2015. After earning a spot in the Pacific Coast League’s All-Star game in 2015, he made his Major League debut with the San Diego Padres.
Decker is the Chihuahuas all-time home run leader with 48 dingers.
