Alyssa Nakken becomes the first woman to coach on the fieldAlyssa Nakken became the first woman in major league baseball history to coach on the field in a game. She was an assistant coach with the San Francisco Giants and made history as the first female assistant coach. Before joining the Giants as an assistant coach‚ Nakken had worked as a front office employee for the team and had already been given more responsibility. But the Giants' latest move was enough to make her the first woman to be on the field as an assistant coach. She was raised in Woodland‚ California‚ and attended Sacramento State University‚ where she was a three-time all-conference first base player and four-time Academic All-America. She later earned a master's degree in sport management from the University of San Francisco. After graduating from university‚ Nakken interned with the San Francisco Giants' baseball operations department. She has embraced her new role as a role model for girls and women. Alyssa Nakken was an assistant coach for the San Francisco Giants in the National League and is the first female coach to take the field during a game in Major League Baseball. She replaced Antoan Richardson‚ who had been ejected in the third inning. The Padres' third base coach‚ Mike Shildt‚ gave Nakken a handshake and a standing ovation as she took her place near first base. In January 2020‚ Nakken was hired as an assistant coach by the Giants' manager Gabe Kapler. She coached first base for the Giants' exhibition game against the Athletics‚ which was a warm-up game before their 60-game season. The Giants first base coach‚ Curt Casali‚ and the Padres' first baseman Eric Hosmer were among the many players who congratulated her. The Padres' Eric Hosmer and Giants' catcher Curt Casali were among the first to congratulate Nakken on her new role. Nakken's appointment signals a new era in baseball where women are gaining greater roles and earning more money. In April‚ the New York Yankees hired their first female minor league manager‚ Rachel Balkovec. And last month‚ Rachel Balkovec made her managerial debut in Tampa.
She yells at Giants playersAlyssa Nakken is the first woman in the big leagues to become a coach. Her hiring last year made history. She made her debut as a coach in an exhibition series. And‚ in her second year on the staff‚ she has added more responsibility. But is she ready to make a big impression? Let's find out. Below are some of her quotes. It's no secret that Alyssa's passion for baseball was cultivated as a child. She attended her first Giants game at the age of three. She later started playing softball at a young age. She went on to play first base at Sacramento State University‚ where she became an all-conference athlete for three years. And she now enjoys being a role model for girls and women. This week‚ Alyssa Nakken became the first female in MLB history to coach on the field. She took over first base during the third inning of San Francisco's 13-2 win over the Padres. The next day‚ her assistant coach‚ Antoan Richardson‚ was ejected for allegedly using racially-charged language. Later‚ Richardson claimed he was yelling at Shildt‚ a Padres assistant coach. Alyssa Nakken wore a white Giants uniform in Tuesday's game. The Giants have already given her helmet from the opening game of 2020. Her career in baseball began with a job as an intern in the Giants organization in 2014. Nakken's actions have a ripple effect that is impacting MLB. The first woman coach in the major leagues stepped in to help out during a game and became the first woman to do so. Antoan Richardson was ejected after yelling at Alyssa Nakken. Alyssa Nakken was a great addition to the San Francisco Giants‚ who are currently in the third place of the National League West. Nakken's yells are a part of her role in preparing players for the upcoming season. The Giants' first female coach was hired in January 2020. Previously‚ Nakken worked as a baseball operations intern with the San Francisco Giants. In that position‚ she oversaw health and wellness initiatives for the Giants. She also has a master's degree in sports management. The role of women in baseball will expand. In the meantime‚ Nakken's rise has been applauded by other women in the industry. New York Yankees assistant general manager Jean Afterman has commended Nakken's rise in the organization. The Giants need role models in their team‚ and Nakken is doing her part. So‚ while she may not be a woman in the major leagues‚ she is helping the Giants return to prominence. During spring training‚ Nakken's main responsibilities included guiding the Giants' outfielders and baserunners. She also threw batting practice and assisted in the batting cage. Unfortunately‚ the Giants shut down spring training earlier this year due to a coronavirus pandemic. Nakken spent six years in the front office before getting the job.
She coaches during a regular-season gameAlyssa Nakken made sports history Tuesday at Oracle Park as the first woman to coach a major league baseball game. Nakken‚ a former college softball star‚ was hired as an intern by the Giants in 2014. Before the 2020 season‚ she was named assistant coach. When the 2020 season began‚ Nakken will be named full-time coach. She previously played softball for the Sacramento State Hornets and was an Academic All-American. Alyssa Nakken was hired as a full-time MLB coach in January 2020‚ and she will be the first female coach in the league. The Giants hired Nakken to serve as their first base coach when they needed a coach for the position. Alyssa Nakken studied psychology at Sacramento State University and played softball for the team. The moment was historic for many reasons. While she made history by coaching during a regular-season game‚ her impact may be even greater than that of a single game. She may inspire a new generation of young girls to pursue sports careers‚ but her greatest impact may be on the next generation of girls who will see Nakken on the base or at the plate. Everyone needs a role model. When you see someone like you in a position you want to be one day‚ it sets a mental path to achieve your goals. After the Giants ejected Antoan Richardson‚ Nakken took over the first base position. Eric Hosmer‚ San Diego Padres first baseman‚ was the first to congratulate her. The San Francisco Giants went on to win the game 13-2. The game marks the beginning of the first-ever role for a woman in the league. As an assistant coach‚ Nakken works with players in baserunning and outfield defense. In addition to her position as a coach‚ Nakken also watches games from the Giants' batting cage. On Tuesday‚ she was greeted with a round of hugs when she returned to the dugout. Even home plate umpire Chris Guccione ran over to welcome Nakken. Before joining the Giants' coaching staff‚ Nakken served on the Giants' operations department for six years. She helped implement health programs and worked in various roles in the front office. In addition‚ she earned a master's in sports management from the University of San Francisco in 2015. Nakken also played three sports in high school and was a four-time All-Pacific Coast Softball Conference selection. She was also named first-team All-Pacific Coast Softball Conference in 2009.

Seth Brown's journey to the big leagues is one of my favorites. Everyone in the A's player development group was excited when he made his debut. Back when he was first called up, his signing scout, Jimmy Coffman, talked to me about what made Brown special: https://t.co/MQWh30OfYp https://t.co/XVbabb4w7u — Melissa Lockard (@melissalockard) April 12, 2022
