Antoan Richardson continues to make strides in his post-playing career.

On Friday night, the 35-year-old made Bahamian history, filling in as the first-base coach for the San Francisco Giants in a series-opener against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Richardson stood in for first base coach José Alguacil. The Giants won the game 5-3.

Drafted by the Giants in 2005, Richardson returned to the organization this offseason to serve as a minor league field coordinator. The Giants announced Richardson’s hire in February, two months after he accepted a position as a minor league outfield coordinator with the Toronto Blue Jays.
