Minor League Baseball selects first female manager
(CNN) - Minor League Baseball has selected its first female manager.
Rachel Balkovec, 34, confirmed Sunday she has been hired to manage the Tampa Tarpons, a team affiliated with the New York Yankees.
The move comes after the Yankees hired Balkovec in 2019 as the first woman to be a full-time hitting coach in a Major League Baseball organization.
Before that, Balkovec worked with the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago White Sox.
