·1-min read

The Milwaukee Brewers promoted Sara Goodrum to minor league hitting coordinator Thursday.

She is the first woman to hold that position with an MLB club, according to The Athletic.

Her official title is coordinator of hitting development initiatives. She previously served as the organization's coordinator of integrative sports performance.

"We've seen it work for almost four years with Sara in our organization working very closely with our players and our coaches," Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told "I think we've seen that because of her talent and her skill set, she is trusted and respected."

Goodrum was an outfielder with the Oregon softball team from 2012-15.
