Alyssa Nakken has been called an inspiration, a trailblazer and a role model. She broke down barriers and overcame huge obstacles.
Hired by the San Francisco Giants in January 2020, Nakken will share her story as the first woman to serve in a full-time coaching capacity in major league baseball history. Nakken recently donated the jersey she wore during the Giants' season-opening game in 2020 to the Hall of Fame.
This program is free, but registration is required.
