El Paso Chihuahuas player guest-anchors on local news, is the best

Minor Leaguer anchors sports in El Paso newscast

After spending the first part of the season at their old ballpark in Tuscon, the El Paso Chihuahuas officially moved to El Paso this week. In honor of this joyous occasion, a local TV station asked infielder Cody Decker to anchor Sunday's sports segment. Here are a few important points we learned:

-- Cody Decker is a first baseman, third baseman, left fielder, right fielder, catcher, designated hitter and pinch-hitter.

-- Cody Decker has a strong jaw-line and enjoys listening to Corey Hart (not the one on the Mariners).  

-- Cody Decker is an all-around handsome guy.

-- Cameron Maybin has the best hair on earth.

-- Tony Parker scored 37,000 points in the Spurs' Game 7 victory over the Mavericks.

-- Cody Decker is a Lakers fan and doesn't care about anything else.

-- Cody Decker wishes he had a timeshare in Fresno.

-- Bowties are cool.

What else would you expect from the man who recently convinced Jeff Francoeur that one of their teammates was deaf for an entire month?
