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.

Rick Strickland is the Cubs AA hitting coach and the owner of Train Right Academy in St Louis. He has coached travel teams and was a former Yankee draft pick. When Rick Strickland broke his hand in his Junior year of college at Austin Peay, he was Top 10 in the nation in Batting Avg. and Stolen Bases. It was a blow missing the season, but like he tells his players when one door closes, another opens. He got a chance to play in the Cape Cod League with some amazing talent. “I played with great players and future Hall of Famers. Frank Thomas, Mo Vaugh, Tim Salmon, Jeff Kent, and Denny Neagle. Playing with top talent elevates your game and your mind” Rick came back and tore it up his Senior year leading the team to its first winning season in a decade and helping turn the program around. “The leadership, that's what really stays with me. What the team and I helped do for the program was immense.” Rick's standout play caught the attention of the Yankees, who drafted him. After spending time in their farm system, Rick brought his passion for player development and innovation to coaching. Rick is driven by improving players and helping them battle through challenges – mental and physical. “If you want to hit hard or throw hard, you have to train hard. You have to push your past what you think you can do to achieve more.” Baseball is a game of speed and power. What you do in the gym, will show on the field. His obsession with making improvements and player feedback took him down the technology path, where he has been a pioneer. He worked in early-stage development with Blast Motion, Rapsodo, Diamond Kinetics, and Uplift. A true student of the game, Rick grew up in Chicago as a two-way guy – a player AND a sports reporter. “Starting at 6 years old, I played constantly, but I also had to give my uncle complete recaps of the Cubs and White Sox games. I was his ESPN. What was the score? How did they get their runs? I had to tell him the story behind the game.” After years of playing, coaching, and “reporting,” Rick can readily spot the story behind each player's swing and throw. For him, and the CRTR staff, understanding how a player moves in training and practice is key to unlocking how they will perform on the field. Their collective job is to make players better. With over 375 college commits, 78 professional players, and 2 All-Stars in Andrew Benitendi and Jake Odorizzi, Coach Strickland's obsession with player development is the centerpiece of every training program. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/playballkid/message

In addition to leading the 1972 World Series champion A's in home runs, Mike played for arguably the greatest hitter of all-time, Ted Williams…Using what he learned from his career and from Ted Williams, Mike built a system to identify and fix swing faults. Mike received the only letter of recommendation for hitting instruction Ted Williams ever gave out…After working closely with Mike to learn the craft of teaching hitting, Epstein Hitting is now led by Jake Epstein…Jake has perfected the use of video analysis to create a plan to maximize a player's swing. In addition to slow-motion video analysis, Jake has built a library of drills that he uses to address the unique needs of individual players.
