Will Jean Afterman be baseball’s first female GM? The sport should be so lucky

TODAY, YANKEES PRESIDENT Randy Levine calls it “inevitable.” Cashman says he can’t think of a reason why not. Yet there still has never been a female GM.

“I’m kind of disappointed her name never comes up,” Nomura says. “I don’t know why. It is very disappointing.”

Afterman’s résumé would certainly qualify her for the job.

“If I could be a GM, she could be a GM,” says Cashman, who, like many of his counterparts, never played professional baseball.

Afterman says she has always wanted to remain with the Yankees, and isn’t even sure other teams would look at her in that capacity.

“I like being the adviser,” Afterman says.

Pitch boss on Fox baseball drama’s struggle and future | EW

Pitch finished it’s 10 episode run, with the possibility for a second season still unclear. Have people been watching?

With our show, the concept of the first female pitcher in the major leagues, it’s not something you can do every season, so you want to be able to start the next season with a different set of obstacles for her, and that would come with an injury and trying to get back and make the team. That is something that isn’t specific to the first female athlete, it’s any athlete, whether it’s a rookie or a veteran. We wanted her to do that, but also not have the support system going into the next season and just make it harder for her. We think it will just be more emotional if we see her overcome those obstacles. So that’s what we were attempting to do.
