Kim Ng, The First Female GM In The Big Four Leagues
Ng's rise to the top of baseball didn't come easy. The oldest of 5 girls, she was dealt a devastating blow when she lost her father at age 11. That tragic loss made her strong and gave her a 'never quit' attitude, that served her well throughout her life. An avid baseball fan and athlete in her own right, Ng played softball through college. When graduated she landed her first gig in the MLB working as an intern for the Chicago White Sox. For the next 30-years, Ng built a career working in the front office of baseball's most iconic franchises like the Dodgers, Yankees, and more.
Today Kim Ng is not the GM for the Marlins, but the highest-ranking female executive in the MLB. You go, girl!
