It may not have been how she planned it, but Alyssa Nakken made MLB history on Tuesday night. Nakken became the first woman in league history to coach on the field in a regular-season game. The San Francisco Giants assistant replaced Antoan Richardson at first base in the third inning after he was ejected during their game against the San Diego Padres at Oracle Park.
