As Miami’s front office shakeup continues, a new asset has been acquired upfront. Kim Ng will become the Marlins’ General Manager, the first Woman and Asian-American GM.
Kim Ng brings a whole new level of MLB experience. Having 30-plus years in a position, Ng has been with the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. She was recently MLB’s Senior VP of Baseball Operations. Not only does Ng have league experience, but she also has World Series expertise. During her time with New York and Los Angeles, Ng helped those two celebrated clubs make the Post Season eight times with three of those times resulting in a World Series victory.
With this signing, Ng will be the highest-ranking woman in baseball operations among the league’s 30 teams and is believed to be the first female general manager in any of the major North American men’s sports leagues.
“My goal is now to bring championship Baseball to Miami,” she said in an issue stated by the Marlins. With Miami’s recent success in 2020, Ng may just be the last piece to the puzzle for the club to be crowned champions once again.
