Book of Joe: Kevin Long, Philadelphia Phillies Hitting Coach

The Book of Joe Podcast begins with hosts Tom Verducci and World Series Champion Joe Maddon welcoming Philadelphia Phillies Hitting Coach Kevin Long.  Hear an interesting conversation about how some of the best hitters in the game get even better.

Kevin takes us through his playing career and making the transition to becoming a coach.  Kevin explains how working with Carlos Beltran gave him confidence and how he started fundamental work by breaking down the swing of Barry Bonds.  Tom highlights Kevin working with four different teams that all went to the World Series.  Joe reveals what it was like working with specific hitters like Derek Jeter and Kyle Schwarber and how sometimes his job was being a psychologist to address issues on and off the field.  We wrap up with a reading from 'The Book of Joe' where Kevin picks page 333, which addresses Joe's exit from the Cubs organization.

The Book of Joe Podcast is a production of iHeart Radio.
