The San Francisco Giants are applauded after hiring Alyssa Nakken as the first coach in a major league team. But at least one of the team’s former players is not a fan of the movement.
Aubrey Huff, who was a member of the 2010 and 2012 Giants World Series champion teams, expressed his disgust in two tweets.
“I got in trouble for wearing a thong in my own clubhouse when female journalists were present. I can’t imagine how it will develop with a full-time coach running, “she wrote in one of them.” This has #metoo and #BelieveAllWomen written all over it. “
Five minutes later, he added: “I couldn’t imagine taking baseball instructions from a former softball player,” along with an eardrum emoji.
Nakken, who played first base for the Sacramento state softball team, joined the Giants in 2014 as an intern in baseball operations. The new Giants manager, Gabe Kapler, told ESPN that Nakken’s duties as an assistant coach will include batting and fungus batting practices.
Earlier this month, Huff had to clarify that he was “joking” in tweets that seemed to advocate the kidnapping of Iranian women.
