Kim Ng, currently working with the Miami Marlins, is one of 32 Major League Baseball (MLB) general managers. Most fans now believe, “there is finally an MLB general manager who cares,” but she is much more than just a Major League general manager.
Ng is the first woman to ever hold this position. Her road to attaining this title was not easy. She started out her baseball career with the White Sox from 1990-1996 as an assistant director of baseball operations. She then was hired by the New York Yankees from 1998-2001 as the assistant general manager and won three World Series Championships with the Yankees.
In 2002, the Los Angeles Dodgers hired her for the same role she had with the Yankees and was there until 2011. In 2011, she announced she would become the senior vice president of baseball operations for the MLB, where she stayed until the Marlins hired her as their new general manager on Nov. 13, 2020. Her baseball journey has been nothing short of spectacular and her resume speaks for itself. She is dominating what’s thought of as a “man's game.” She is the best example, in my opinion, of a hard worker; she is a person who never takes no for an answer and will do whatever it takes to reach their goals and dreams.
Kim Ng inspires me and should inspire all. The Dodgers rejected her in 2005 for their full-time general manager position and stayed with them afterward. However, after getting rejected by the Mariners, Padres, Angels and Giants along her journey, she finally got her chance at her dream job. With her baseball resume being better than most sitting general managers today, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she will eventually take the Marlins to another championship. They aren't there yet, they still have some rebuilding to do and their young talent needs to further develop, but with Kim Ng at the wheel of the franchise, I have full confidence they will be a good team for years to come and will win another World Series for the city of Miami.
