(CNN) – Minor League Baseball has selected its first female manager.
Rachel Balkovec, 34, confirmed Sunday that she has been tasked with running the Tampa Tarpons, a team from the New York Yankees.
The move comes after the Yankees hired Balkovec in 2019 as the first woman to serve as a full-time batting coach in a Major League Baseball organization.
Balkovec previously worked for the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago White Sox.
