The Athletic, an American sports media outlet, introduced Coach Natkin’s career in detail when reporting this news on the 16th (Korean time) .
Coach Natkin, who has been a softball player since she was in high school, began her connection to professional baseball in 2014 as an operations intern for the San Francisco Giants.
He served on the club’s front office staff for six years, responsible for drafting and player development.
In January 2020, she joined the San Francisco Giants major league team as a coach. She was the first time a woman was appointed as a full-time coach of a major league team.
In the home game against the San Diego Padres held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on April 13 last year, assistant coach Natkin served as first base coach in place of the coach who was ejected.
It was the first time in Major League Baseball that a female coach was officially brought into the game.
The wall of no women in American professional baseball has been slowly breaking down since the Oakland Athletics invited Justin Seagal as an instructor in 2015.
In January of last year, the Tampa Tarpons, a minor league low single A affiliate of the Major League Baseball New York Yankees, appointed then hitting coach Rachel Volkovek (36) as manager.
In Australia, there are also cases of female players playing on the professional baseball stage.
Genevieve Beacom, a left-handed pitcher for the Melbourne Aces of the Australian Professional Baseball League (ABL), became the first female player to officially pitch as a professional baseball player in January last year. In a game against the Adelaide Giants, he went into the 6th inning when the team was down 0-4 and pitched one inning with no hits (1 walk) and no runs.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco team acknowledged the interview, saying, “Coach Natkin is one of the new head coaches who was interviewed.”
It was reported that the San Francisco Giants fired coach Gabe Kapler on the 30th of last month and placed Coach Nakin, third base coach Mark Hallberg, bench coach Kai Correa, and Ron Waters as special assistants as candidates for the new head coach.
