Kevin Richard Long
Weight: 165 lbs.
Born: December 30, 1966 in Van Nuys, CA
Drafted: 31st round 1989 by the Kansas City Royals
Kevin was named the Mets' hitting coach just days after being relieved of the same position for the crosstown Yankees—a job he had held for eight years (quite a long tenure for a hitting coach). He's shown here 25 years prior to that, on a 1989 Best minor-league card. The year after leaving the Mets organization, he successfully assumed the same responsibilities with the Washington Nationals.
