Kevin Long was Yankees Problem

Old Yankees are Back – Kevin Long was the Problem

by Coach Huber
What have the Yankees changed? Yankees lead the league in slugging and hitting numbers have jumped up to 50 points higher than last few years.  Every year the NY Yankees are amongst the most talented group of baseball players in the MLB. Since they are one of the best organization for producing winning teams you can say their players are always amongst the elite and they are certainly paid the highest. The last few years the Yankees have struggled offensively even with a star studded line up. They have been one of the bottom ten teams offensively since 2013, but [...]

New York Yankees 2014-15 Team Review

Can New York Yankees New Hitting Coaches Save the Yankees Line-up? Last year (2014) the New York Yankees ranked 20th out of 29 teams in the MLB in hitting. The NY Yankees only had one player in their line-up (Jacoby Ellbury) that hit over .270 and had more than 15 homers (and he is the mallets Ayer in the team).

Curtis Granderson Review

by Coach Huber
Curtis Granderson Super star out fielder, Curtis Granderson, of the Mets, formerly New York Yankees and had quite a career with the Detroit Tigers as one of their better left-handed hitters in pro baseball. With the Yankees, Curtis Granderson has been benched and a decision has been made by Joe Giradi and hitting coach Kevin Long to re-work Granderson’s swing during the season to get him back to form. Curtis Granderson has consistently been an over 30 home run player in the major leagues and his batting average has always been well over the norm. It seems that Granderson has [...]

What’s Next for Kevin Long?

by Coach Huber
Yankees Hitting Coach Kevin Long Recently Fired Yankees Hitting Coach Kevin Long recently got fired by Yankees management because they could not ignore the fact the the Yankees hitting numbers have gone down ever since Kevin Long has been there. Kevin Long is a well tauted coach who is always a lead speaker at baseball conventions and very comparable to the stature of the late Charlie Lau. Before Kevin Long came on the scene a man named Dave Hudgens preceded him as one of the main baseball hitting gurus. Dave's "Hitting for Excellence" website has appeared number one on Google [...]
