Texas Rangers welcome their newest little slugger in Sun City

Just last week, the Texas Rangers welcomed their newest little slugger, from right here in Sun City. 

Julio Valdez, a Pitching Coach in the Texas Rangers’ MiLB system, and his fiancée Daphne Mora proudly welcomed their first baby boy, Auggie Valdez, at The Hospitals of Providence East Campus.

Mora, a native El Pasoan had made plans to deliver their baby here to be with family. With Valdez in his first season as a minor league pitching coach with the Texas Rangers professional baseball team, there was some anxiety as to where on the road he might be.

When Major League Baseball postponed all baseball activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March, Valdez returned to El Paso to be by his fiancée’s side. The couple was excited to welcome their first child here in El Paso.

“There is definitely a silver lining to this situation,” said Valdez. “I knew the Rangers organization was going to let me come back to El Paso for the birth of my son, but was worried if she delivered early that I could possibly miss it.”

According to the couple, they will enjoy raising baby Auggie in El Paso until professional baseball begins again. Once MLB opens, the couple will return to Arizona and the Texas Rangers family will meet their newest team member.
