Miami Marlins name Kim Ng 1st female general manager in Major League Baseball history

Source: ABC News


Kim Ng was named general manager of the Miami Marlins, the organization announced Friday, becoming the first female and first Asian American general manager in the sport's history.

"I entered Major League Baseball as an intern and, after decades of determination, it is the honor of my career to lead the Miami Marlins as their next General Manager," Ng, a longtime baseball executive who has been senior vice president for baseball operations for the MLB since 2011, said in a statement.



"We are building for the long term in South Florida, developing a forward-thinking, collaborative, creative baseball operation made up of incredibly talented and dedicated staff who have, over the last few years, laid a great foundation for success," she continued. "This challenge is one I donít take lightly. 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."


With over 30 years of experience in the sport, Ng has previously been with the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, and most recently spent the last nine years in the MLB Commissioner's Office. Ng was long rumored to be a prime candidate to become the first female GM in the sport.
