By Adam Roberts – 1/29/2021

In a week of our area NFL teams promoting from within to coordinator positions, yesterday the Brewers followed suit.

Milwaukee has promoted Sara Goodrum to minor league hitting coordinator.

Brewers vice president of minor league operations Tom Flanagan says that “to our knowledge, she would be the first” woman to hold that position in an MLB organization.

Goodrum’s official new title with the Brewers is coordinator for hitting development initiatives. Relating to her experience, she played softball for Oregon from 2012-15 and had spent the last three seasons in the Brewers’ sports science department.
