Biographical Information[edit]

Brook Jacoby was named to "The Top 100 Greatest Indians Roster", as created by the Cleveland Indians in 2001.

Jacoby was a roving hitting instructor for the Cincinnati Reds in 2000 and hitting coach for the Louisville Bats in 2001-2002. He was hitting coach of the AZL Rangers in 2003-2004, and the Texas Rangers' minor league hitting coordinator in 2005-2006. He spent part of the 2006 season as hitting coach for the Texas Rangers while Rudy Jaramillo was ill and was named hitting coach of the Cincinnati Reds in 2007 where he remained through 2013. He was the minor league hitting coordinator for the Rangers in 2014. In 2015, he became hitting coach of the Toronto Blue Jays [1]. That year, he received a rare fourteen-game suspension as a result of pinning umpire Doug Eddings against a wall in a dugout tunnel following a game on April 29th; Jacoby appealed the suspension, claiming the facts were not those reported by the umpire and that the penalty was "very biased, harsh, and unfair", but it was upheld by Major League Baseball.

He led the South Atlantic League with 40 doubles and 108 RBI in 1980.

His father, Brook Jacoby Sr., was a minor league pitcher in 1956-1958. His son, Torrey Jacoby, was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 40th round of the 2007 amateur draft.
