Miami Marlins Hire Kim Ng, Breaking a Baseball Gender Barrier

Marlin's new GM. Kim Ng

Kim Ng has long been viewed as the person who would break one of baseball’s most stubborn barriers.

Thirty years ago, Ms. Ng, 51, started work in the game as an intern for the Chicago White Sox, attempting to carve out a career in a sport dominated by men. She worked her way up, earning senior positions with the Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers and, most recently, serving as Major League Baseball’s senior vice president of baseball operations.

On Friday, she became the first woman hired to run a major league team’s baseball operations when she was named general manager of the Miami Marlins.

“This challenge is one I don’t take lightly,” Ms. Ng said in a statement released by the team. “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.”
