SF Giants’ Naken agrees to MLB memo that some teams have fewer facilities for women

Cincinnati – The Giants are the only team in MLB that has a woman on its coaching staff, but many others have women in supporting roles who often accompany their club on the road.

Alyssa Naiken, San Francisco’s major league assistant, was happy to see a memo from the league last week, first reported by ESPN, of several teams failing to provide adequate facilities for traveling female staff. Even though she said “Overall, I think it’s been pretty positive.”

Under the guidelines provided prior to the 2021 season, each MLB stadium aims to provide clean, private locker rooms for women with showers and restrooms, which are close to visiting the home and clubhouse.

In a memo obtained by ESPN, Michael Hill, MLB’s senior vice president of on-field operations, wrote that many stadiums “come to embarrassingly low standards.” Several female employees told ESPN anonymously about the difficulties they had in finding restrooms to go to the ballpark to be able to carry out their actual duties of the job.

“I haven’t wasted too much time, but it’s something we have to think about in some ballpark, figuring out where the restrooms are,” Naken said Sunday in an interview with the Bay Area Newsgroup. “We have a private locker room, I think, in every stadium we have been to. There are also some where the bathroom situation is a little tougher.”

Giants manager Gabe Kapler echoed the message sent in the memo and backed by Nakkan.

“Some ballparks are in a better position to accommodate the women on our staff and others are working through this and need to get better,” said Kapler, while declining to name specific stadiums.

Nakkan believes it can take a collaborative effort to design an area that is accessible to all.
