In the history of baseball, which spans decades upon decades, there has never been a full-time female coach…until today.
Today, the San Francisco Giants hired Alyssa Nakken who will be an Assistant Coach to Gabe Kapler this upcoming season.
Nakken was previously an intern with the team and also a former collegiate softball player at Sacramento State. Her main responsibility with this new role will be to focus on the clubhouse culture.
The vast majority of us are not athletes, but we all understand how vital a great workplace culture is to the success of any franchise. Nakken is lookin forward to making history with her new role and to try helping the Giants to another title.
