Jessica Mendoza On National Fishing & Boating Week, ESPN & Working With The New York Mets

Jessica Mendoza is an analyst for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball and baseball operations adviser to the New York Mets. In 2015, she became the first female analyst for a nationally-televised MLB Postseason game. A few months prior, she became the first female ESPN MLB game analyst during a regular season edition of Monday Night Baseball. Her groundbreaking 2015 also included the distinction of becoming the first female analyst for a Men’s College World Series telecast.

Prior to her work with ESPN, Mendoza was a field reporter for Yahoo! Sports at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and also served as the lead college softball analyst on FOX Sports. Mendoza is a two-time Olympian and was a member of the US. Women’s National team from 2001-2010. Her team took home the Gold medal in Athens, Greece (2004) and the Silver medal in Beijing, China (2008). She is both a three-time World Champion and World Cup Champion, in addition to being named USA Softball Athlete of the Year (2006) and Women’s Sports Foundation Sportswoman of the Year (2008).

Jessica Mendoza is currently on a mission to encourage other women and adventure–seekers of all ages to make fishing a family affair and create unforgettable memories on the water. Families across the country can “test the waters” during National Fishing & Boating Week — June 1-9, 2019 — a celebration that highlights the importance of recreational boating and fishing. Many states offer Free Fishing Days, when normal fishing license requirements are waived on both freshwater and saltwater.

I spoke with Jessica Mendoza about her work with the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, National Fishing & Boating Week, the New York Mets and more. Our May 31, 2019 interview is embedded below for your viewing pleasure, while more on Mendoza can be found by following her on Twitter via the @JessMendoza handle and/or on Instagram as @JessMendoza2.
