Tough Women Make History - Jen Welter (NFL) & Justine Siegal (MLB)
Play • 55 min

Before both Jen Welter and Justine Siegal were hired as coaches for the Arizona Cardinals (NFL) & Oakland A's (MLB) respectively in 2015, there had been a grand total of zero female coaches in either league. While they had to endure tough times - from being spat on and tackled, to dealing with verbal abuse - they not only persevered to achieve their own dreams, but paved the way for those who followed too: 4 women were part of the Tampa Bay staff that won Super Bowl LV in 2021, and major market teams like the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox now boast females as part of their coaching team. In this Women's History Month special, we talk about their journeys from outsiders to part of the game, the mental strengths you must have as an outsider or minority, as well as what they learned along the way about how to forge a path when one doesn't exist yet.
