Biographical Information[edit]

Steve Decker was drafted in the 21st round of the 1988 amateur draft out of Lewis-Clark State College. Much of the initial scout attention paid to Decker was actually due to his teammate, and fellow battery mate, Stephen Callahan who was twice himself drafted (in 1988 and 1989), and despite having posted three consecutive minor league seasons with an ERA in the low 2.00's, and never over 3.53 in his minor league career, never made the big leagues.

Decker was manager of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes of the Northwest League from 2005 to 2007. He became skipper of the San Jose Giants in 2008 and led them to the best overall record in the California League, even though they missed the playoffs. Decker was a coach for Salem-Keizer in 2001-2002 and the Fresno Grizzlies in 2003-2004.

In 2016, he became a major league coach for the first time as assistant hitting coach of the San Francisco Giants. After two seasons on the job, he was named a special assistant in baseball operations after the 2017 season.
