PEORIA (1470 & 100.3 WMBD) - The Saint Louis Cardinals are making some history with some help from their Class-A affiliate in Peoria.

The Peoria Chiefs says joining the roster of coaches this year is Christina Whitlock — believed to be the first uniformed female coach the Cardinals have had.

Whitlock will serve as Peoria’s fourth coach, previously a tech fellow at the Cardinals’ Jupiter, Florida complex.

Whitlock helped lead the South Carolina Gamecocks to the Women’s College World Series in 1997.

The Chiefs say most of the rest of the coaching staff is familiar to fans, led by skipper Patrick Anderson, Pitching Coach Edwin Moreno, and new Chiefs Hitting Coach Casey Chenoweth.

The Chiefs’ 40th season begins at home April 6th.
