Now another big one: The Miami Marlins named Kim Ng as their general manager, the first woman hired as a major league GM.
Ng is the first woman hired as a general manager in any major men’s professional sport in North America.
A glass ceiling that has endured from Branch Rickey to George Halas, through the Michael Jordan and Patrick Kane eras, finally comes down.
Jean Afterman is a New York Yankees assistant general manager, and Raquel Ferreira is an executive vice president and assistant GM with the Boston Red Sox.
The glass ceiling has been an ugly barrier in American society for far too long.
