Yankees make history by promoting first female hitting coach to minor league manager

The Yankees made history on Sunday by promoting minor league hitting coach Rachel Balkovec to be the manager of their Single-A affiliate, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.

Balkovec became the first woman to be named a hitting coach by a major league team, and now becomes the first female manager in the minors. She will manage the Tampa Tarpons.


Balkovec was hired by the Yankees in November 2019.
