Long Father and Son Share Baseball Franchise

Kevin Long, the hitting coach for the New York Yankees, gets to keep close tabs on his son Jaron, who is currently a pitcher in the Yankees organization. Jaron was not drafted out of college in 2013, but has found his way onto the Class A Tampa club in the Yankees system where his father has been working since 2004.

Jaron has lived a baseball life since following his dad at baseball stadiums throughout his minor league career. He later got to hang around Yankees pitchers Andy Pettitte and David Robertson as a result of his father’s big league job. Considered somewhat of a long-shot, Jaron has the advantage of getting support from his father.
