Former Chihuahua Cody Decker Set to Host Hitting Clinic, Film Screening
Former El Paso Chihuahuas All-Star Cody Decker will host a film screening and two separate hitting clinics during the weekend of Jan. 19-20.
His film screening event, "Heading Home," is set for Jan. 19 at Temple Mount Sinai, which tells the story of Israel’s national baseball team as it competed for the first time in the World Baseball Classic.
The indoor hitting clinic will take place at Southwest University Park on Jan. 20, with two separate sessions. The first will take place from 10 a.m. - noon for ages 10-12, while the second will take place from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. for ages 13-15. Registration is 30 minutes prior to the start of each clinic and the cost is $35 per player on a first come first served basis.
“The City of El Paso has given me so much in my career and life,” Decker said in a release. “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.”
Decker recently signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks and formally played for the Chihuahuas in 2014 and 2015. After earning a spot in the Pacific Coast League's All-Star game in 2015, he made his MLB debut with the Padres. He is still the all-time leading home run hitter in Chihuahuas history at 48.
