Sue Falsone became the first female head trainer in the four major professional sports when she joined the Dodgers in 2011, but yesterday she announced via Twitter that she’s stepping down from the job:
It is with a heavy heart to say that I will not be returning to the LA Dodgers in order to pursue other opportunities within my career.
Falsone replaced Stan Conte as head trainer and Ramona Shelbourne of ESPN Los Angeles writes that she “was popular with the players and well-respected in the organization.” So it was clearly Falsone’s decision to resign from the gig.
