Red Sox hire first Black female coach
It’s a historic move for Major League Baseball — and quite the exciting next step in the career of Bianca Smith! Sports Writer, Gianmarco Castronovo, shares the story:
On Monday, the Boston Red Sox made an announcement on Twitter that has officially made history in the world of baseball. Extending a warm welcome to their newest member, the Red Sox announced that Bianca Smith will join the team as a minor league coach. This news is particularly significant because Bianca Smith is now the first Black woman to coach in the MLB.
Certainly fit for the job, the 29-year-old Bianca Smith has already racked up an admirable start to her career in baseball. Since 2018, she has worked as Assistant Coach and Hitting Coordinator at Caroll in Wisconsin. Gianmarco Castronovo looks forward to the evolution of Smith’s promising coaching career.
