History was made with this hire. Miami Marlins have hired Kim Ng as General Manager.
Ng is the first female GM in MLB history. Before coming to the Marlins, she spent time as an Assistant GM with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Besides serving as Assistant GM with the Dodgers, she also was an Assistant GM with the New York Yankees.
Almost for the past decade, Ng has worked for the Major League Baseball office. She was the Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations, working under Joe Torre.
“On behalf of Principal Owner Bruce Sherman and our entire ownership group, we look forward to Kim bringing a wealth of knowledge and championship-level experience to the Miami Marlins,” Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said in a statement. “Her leadership of our baseball operations team will play a major role on our path toward sustained success. Additionally, her extensive work in expanding youth baseball and softball initiatives will enhance our efforts to grow the game among our local youth as we continue to make a positive impact on the South Florida community.”
She takes over for Michael Hill, who did not have his contract renewed at the end of the season.
Ng takes over a team that made their first playoff appearance since the 2003 season. In 2020, the Marlins 31-29 in the MLB 60-game coronavirus schedule.
The Atlanta Braves swept the Marlins 3-0 to advance to the National League Championship Series. When the Marlins lost the series, it was the first time that the team lost a playoff series in team 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 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.
“This challenge is one I don’t 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. My goal is now to bring Championship baseball to Miami. I am both humbled and eager to continue building the winning culture our fans expect and deserve.”
