Ng, 51, is considered to be the first female general manager for the men's sports team in North America, said the Marlins.

Since 2011 she operated directly in a commissioner's office as Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations, reporting to Joe Torre.

She served previously with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2002-2011), New York Yankees (1998-2001) and Chicago White Sox headquarters (1990-1996).

The native of Queens is fifth in baseball operations to fill Marlins' top spot and replaces Michael Hill, who wasn't kept after the 2020 season.
