Alyssa Nakken Coached 1st Base For the Giants Last Night And Became The First On-Field Female Coach In MLB History
Awesome moment in sports history last night as Alyssa Nakken coached first base in the later innings of the A's Giants game. Just a very, very cool moment and another big step for women in sports. Nakken joined Gabe Kapler's stuff before the season, becoming the first full-time female coach in MLB history. Alyssa is on the staff as an assistant coach, having worked her way up from being an intern in the baseball ops department back in 2014. What a grind.
Also, could you imagine the stupid look on Aubrey Huff's face when he saw this on his timeline last night? This parlayed with the Giants kneeling during the anthem.
I wouldn't be shocked if Aubrey Huff spontaneously combusted into thin air last night. Man would that be awesome. Fuck. That. Guy.
