Kevin Long may be a nice guy, but the players he coaches seem to go through prolonged slumps. Changing Derek Jeter's batting stance was a catastrophe. Nick Swisher hasn't hit all season. The Yankees' DH is batting .179 and other Bronx Bombers are hitting below their skill levels. This book tells a lot about Kevin Long's love of the game and his perseverance through his minor league career, but it loses a lot of zing when one considers how poorly the Yankees are hitting under his coaching.
