Alyssa Irks rented Nakken former player Giants Aubrey Huff

The Giants San Francisco is being praised after employing Alyssa Nakken as the first female coach on a major league team. But at least one of the players played by the team is not a fan in the move.

Aubrey Huff, who was a member of the Giants 2010 and 2012 World Series champion teams, showed that he was unhappy in two titles.

“I went into trouble when I threw a dong in my own clubhouse when there were female reporters present. Can't imagine how to avoid a full time female coach running around, ”he wrote in one of them. “#Metoo & #BelieveAllWomen has written on all of this.”

Five minutes later, he said, “I couldn't imagine that baseball instruction would be taken from a former female softball player,” along with an eyeroll emoji.

Nakken, who played the first base for the Sacramento State team, worked with the Giants in 2014 as an intern in baseball operations. Gabe Kapler, manager of the new artists, told ESPN that Nakken's duties as an assistant coach would include batting practice and hitting vomiting.

Earlier this month, Huff was forced to clarify that he was “joking” in tweets that seemed to support him kidnapping Iranian women.
