Miami Marlins hire MLB's first female GM   

MIAMI (AP) — Kim Ng became the highest-ranking woman in baseball operations in the major leagues when she was hired on Nov. 13 as general manager of the Miami Marlins.

Ng, 52, is believed to be the first female general manager for a men's team in a major professional sport in North America, the Marlins said.

She entered Major League Baseball as an intern and has 21 years of big-league experience in the front offices of the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. She spent the past nine years with the MLB as a senior vice president.

"When I got into this business, it seemed unlikely a woman would lead a major league team, but I am dogged in the pursuit of my goals. My goal is now to bring championship baseball to Miami."

Ng has worked with teams who made the playoffs eight times, and won three World Series titles. She succeeds Michael Hill, who was not retained after the 2020 season. Marlins CEO Derek Jeter, who became baseball's first Black CEO in 2017, played for the Yankees when Ng worked for them.
