    On 12/30/20, Becky Hammon, in a Lakers/Spurs NBA game eventually won by Los Angeles, made history. When Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was eected after a rant to a ref about a bad call, Hammon took over for him. That made her the first woman to act as a head coach during a game, not only in the NBA, but in all of male professional American team sports.

    Just as the late Buck O'Neil did with the Cubs in 1962, 29-year-old Bianca Smith will be doing in 2021. O'Neil became the first African-American to coach in MLB annals. Smith will be the first African-American female coach to take a coaching job in pro baseball. She will become a minor league coach in the Red Sox organization, mainly assisting players with their batting skills at the minor league complex in Fort Myers, FL.
