BCM: Congratulations on your book, Smarty Marty’s Got Game. What inspired you to write the book?

AG:  Thank you! Everyday at the park I see young girls who love and understand the game on an equal level as boys and when I was approached by Cameron & Co. I thought it could be a great opportunity to explore that dynamic. I settled on the premise of scoring a game since it’s now become somewhat of a lost art and have a heroine in a male dominated world. I was able to make the book a true tribute to my grandmother who loved baseball so much, albeit she was a Dodgers fan, grrr! Just before she passed away she said she really hoped I moved forward on the book project. Smarty Marty is named after her (Martha) and I was able to immortalize one of my favorite people. I love that so many people get to experience a little bit of what my grandmother meant to me. She’ll continue to be with us with a new Smarty Marty Chapter book due out in Spring 2017!


BCM: What’s your favorite thing about being the in game TV reporter during a professional Major League baseball game?

AG: There’s too many to choose just one. I think the most important is utilizing the stage of Major League Baseball to set a good example to young girls and attempt to blaze a trail. The position I currently hold did not exist when I was younger so I feel and extreme responsibility and appreciation for what I’m able to do. Talk ball and put a few more cracks in the glass ceiling. Next spring I’ll be in my 10th season.


BCM: What is one piece of advice you would pass along to other moms?

AG:  If you aren’t taking care of yourself you’re in no place to take care of others. Make yourself a priority too.


BCM: How do you tackle work/life balance?Amy Gutierez

AG: Carefully!I try very hard to be present in whatever situation I’m in. If I’m with the kids I try to not worry about the Giants game and while I never really stop thinking about my children, while I’m at a game I focus on the task at hand. I constantly feel overwhelmed, but procrastination only adds pressure. I write lists everyday and get to it! It always seems like I won’t have enough time to get it all done….and then somehow I do.  

BCM: If you could hand off one chore to someone else each day, what would it be?

AG:   Dishes. It’s the chore that never ends. Just when you feel you’ve finished and have a sense of accomplishment up comes one of your children with another dirty spoon!

BCM: WHAT is your favorite thing to do to relax and unwind?

AG: My version of “unwind” is different than most. I play competitive soccer and it is definitely my outlet and stress release. I’m super calm after a game and feel patient yet energized….but only after I’ve sprinted and been body checked into the wall for 50 minutes!


AG: I have Santa’s cell phone number and will not hesitate to call him right now!

BCM: What is your best parenting hack?

AG:  Sarcasm. My kids get it and it always lightens the mood.

BCM: What was the last book you read?

AG: Find Her, by Lisa Gardner. Good, but creepy. Book club selection.

A great tube of Benefits “They’re Real” black mascara – makes a BIG difference


Big soccer player and when I play, my Fitbit Alta, of which I’m obsessed, does fun firework displays because I always reach my goal!


Big Old Nay fan. Can get such good deals for affordable prices. My kids are 11 and 8 and growing by the second so I’m not a believer in spending a fortune for one wear.


Instagram and the San Francisco Giants page of course!

What is on your DVR? 

Embarrassed to admit, but love Real Housewives of BH and NY. Also big fan of Ray Donovan, Real Time, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
