“My entire career, especially coming up through the minor leagues, I was the first woman at every single stop,” Newman told MLB Network. “I couldn’t help but think in the back of my head: ‘That’s great, but let’s keep going. Let’s move past being the first, and just make this more of a normal occasion that’s coming around where we’re not qualifying people based on their gender.

In 2020, Alyssa Nakken became the first woman to serve as a full-time MLB coach.

The league has a record 23 coaches on staff this season.
