The latest guest on The Base Path Podcast is a trailblazer for women in the baseball industry.
Katie Krall is only the second female coach in the history of the Boston Red Sox organization. She was hired by the Red Sox in January to serve as the player development coach at Double-A Portland.
Krall paid her dues to land a job as a coach in pro baseball. She worked in the MLB office for two years as an economics and operations coordinator. After that, she worked for the Reds for two years as a baseball analyst.
The Portland position is her first as a coach on the field.
