Alyssa Nakken Reportedly Interviews With Giants In MLB First

Oct 16, 2023

The San Francisco Giants fired Gabe Kapler after an underwhelming four seasons at the helm and are looking internally for their next manager.

One of their candidates is reportedly Alyssa Nakken, who is believed to be the first woman to interview for a manager job in Major League Baseball history, per The Athletic.

Nakken became the first woman to ever join an MLB coaching staff when she was promoted to assistant coach in 2020. In April 2022, she became the first woman to coach on the field when she took over for ejected first base coach Antoan Richardson during a game against the San Diego Padres.
