New York Finally Has a Hitting Coach!

The New York Yankees have finally hired a hitting coach and even hired an assistant hitting coach to go with it. The Yankees hitting coach in 2015 will be Jeff Pentland while Alan Cockrell will be the assistant hitting coach. This marks the first time that the Yankees have had an assistant hitting coach in their storied history.

Pentland was the hitting coach with the Marlins and the Cubs while Joe Girardi was there while also being the hitting coach for the Royals, the Mariners and the Dodgers. Cockrell was the hitting coach for that Rockies team that went to the World Series in 2007.

Next up, a first base coach.
