Gary Brian Denbo

[edit] Biographical Information

Gary Denbo was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 17th round of the 1983 amateur draft and played four years in the minor leagues, reaching AA in 1986, before becoming a minor league coach and manager.

Denbo was the major league hitting coach with the 2001 AL champion New York Yankees. He was hitting coach for the 2008 Toronto Blue Jays but was fired on May 20, alongside manager John Gibbons and two other coaches. The Blue Jays had fallen to last place in the AL East and were experiencing serious problems scoring runs in spite of an excellent team on-base percentage; the Jays were also on a pace to set a season record for grounding into double plays. He was replaced by Gene Tenace. Denbo has won championships as a player or a coach at every level of professional baseball.

He later scouted for the New York Yankees.
