Gary B. Denbo (b. December 9, 1960, Princeton, Indiana) is currently Player Development Consultant for the New York Yankees, returning in 2009 for his 15th season with the 26 time world champions after serving as as the Major League Hitting Coach for the Toronto Blue Jays during the first half of the 2008 season.
Drafted as an infielder by the Cincinnati Reds in 1983, Denbo played four seasons in the Minor leagues before entering the coaching ranks. He made his Major League debut on April 2, 2001 as the Hitting Coach for the New York Yankees.
Denbo has been instrumental in developing the hitting talents of several players as they developed into major league caliber hitters; including Derek Jeter, Mike Lowell, Alfonso Soriano, Jorge Posada, Bernie Williams, Paul O'Neill, and Tino Martinez. He is known throughout professional baseball for his preparedness and attention to detail in developing team and individual hitting plans, as well as for his ability to make hitting slumps more short lived by using video and computer analysis of the baseball swing to quickly identify and correct flaws.
