So what has former Nats closer Chad Cordero been up to? After leaving the Nats, his career largely faded due to injury. He also had a difficult period when his infant daughter died of SIDS.
This summer, he coached at a youth baseball camp in Bethesda, the Chad Cordero Celebrity Baseball Camp in July. It's good to see Cordero involved in D.C. area baseball again. Too bad that his career didn't pan out after his success in 2005. Hopefully he can be involved in other activities in the D.C. area going forward, maybe even some sort of organizational role with the Nats, whether it's with promotion or some type of special advisory role.
