Alyssa Nakken Becomes First Female Coach On Field

“I think we’re all inspirations doing everything that we do on a day-to-day basis and I think, yes, this carries a little bit more weight because of the visibility, obviously there’s a historical nature to it,” she said. “But again, this is my job.”

Nakken came in to coach first base for the Giants in the third inning after Antoan Richardson was ejected.

When she was announced as Richardson’s replacement, Nakken received a warm ovation from the crowd at Oracle Park, and a congratulatory handshake from Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer.

What profanity will Shildt use with her? The traditional MFr doesn't really work as well. Most of the traditional ones work as well. It could create a whole new level of profanity creation.

Pretty cool she was called in. Love seeing the (slow) progress of women in sports management.

What profanity will Shildt use with her?

Shildt today, after making peace with Antoan Richardson:

"We're here to play baseball," Shildt said. "And the one thing I've always loved about our game is it's regardless of the color of your skin, regardless of your socioeconomics, regardless of what language you speak, and now, thankfully, regardless of your gender -- we had a beautiful moment last night with Alyssa. ... I think good is going to come of this, because now the reality is we handled this tough situation publicly, as men with solutions and without any animosity. It's a great example of how people communicate together."
