Even if she wasn’t a woman, Kim Ng, the new Miami Marlins GM, would be exceptional.
And yet, the celebration of her success this week has largely been couched as a celebration of the hire as harbinger of many more like it to come.

Kim Ng, seen here at a conference in Brazil in February, has been qualified for a GM role for years.
