If you are asking yourself, “What’s Kevin Long doing on a baseball card?” You are not alone. The hitting coach for the Yankees somehow found his way onto a baseball card. I have tons of manager cards, but this is my one and only hitting coach card.
Long may not be fully responsible for one of the best offensive clubs in baseball, but he may have played a big role in Robinson Cano’s turnaround season. As a team, the Yankees rank either first or second in the majors in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs and runs. Sounds like Long’s job is safe, for now.
