The unforgettable high school days of Kim Ng

Ng was a middle infielder on the diamond, showing off a mix of leadership skills and scrappiness (she once told her younger sister she knew she’d played hard only if her uniform was dirty). Second base was her position when she joined the team in ‘84 and, by senior year, she was the starting shortstop. She was also very “analytical” about everything and seemed to have a natural feel and knowledge of the game.

“I gave her free reign on the bases,” Paul says. “She was so smart and could read catchers. Lots of delayed steals.”

Paul wanted to make her the three hitter because she could, well, hit, but she was forced to bat her leadoff.

“Her on-base percentage was ridiculous,” Paul remembers, laughing. “She just knew what to do, how to work the pitcher, what to do with runners on base. She knew the game. You know, a lot of girls like to play, but they don’t know the game. With Kim, you’d start saying the sentence and she’d finish it for you.”

Miami Marlins hire Kim Ng as MLB’s first female general manager

The Miami Marlins are hiring Kim Ng as their new general manager, making her Major League Baseball’s first female and first Asian American GM, the team announced Friday.

Ng has most recently served as MLB’s senior vice president of baseball operations. She has also served as assistant general manager for the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers.

“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.”

Ng, who also spent time in the Chicago White Sox front office, will be the highest-ranking woman in baseball operations among the league’s 30 teams.
