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 [...]

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.

St. Louis Cardinals 2014 MLB Playoffs

MLB Playoffs 2014 Cardinals Review

by Coach Huber
The St. Louis Cardinals are the closest thing to the NY Yankees of the National League. To put it bluntly, they just win and continue to win year in and year out.

It is no secret that the organization is built on class, character, and strategic and careful planning on building and keeping a winning roster year in and year out. The Cardinals [...]
