It was coach Gabe Kapler who led San Francisco from 2020 to this year. For four years, 2021 was the only year that San Francisco reached the postseason stage. Continuing from last year, I was not invited to the fall baseball game again this year.
Then, San Francisco fired Coach Kapler on the 30th of last month and began looking for a new head coach.
Several people, including Coach Nakin, are on the candidate list. MLB.com reported, “Third base coach Mark Hallberg, bench coach Kai Correa, and special assistant Ron Waters are candidates for San Francisco’s managerial position.”
While she played for the Sacramento State University women’s softball team, Coach Natkin began her major league career by joining the San Francisco Baseball Team as an intern in 2014. Since then, she has been in charge of managing the players’ health and welfare.
She then announced that in January 2020, she was appointed as an assistant coach for the San Francisco big league team. It was the first time an MLB club appointed a woman as an official coach.
In 2020, when the opening of the MLB regular season was postponed due to COVID-19, she appeared in a practice game against the Oakland Athletics on July 21, and she appeared as first base coach.
On April 13, 2022, during a game against the San Diego Padres, she stood in for the first base coach when he was ejected after arguing with an umpire. It was the first time in MLB history that a female coach took the field in an official game.
If she is appointed as director, she will also write a page in history.
