Phillies to Interview Ng, Atkins for General Manager Role

Ng has made baseball history in numerous positions with a track record of success. Will she make history again and become the first female general manager in any of the four major sports?

Per Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Phillies are continuing their search for a general manager by scheduling interviews with Kim Ng and Ross Atkins.

Ng made her mark first as a Chicago White Sox intern in 1991 and then as the Assistant Director of Baseball Operations in 1994 where she became the youngest and first female to ever defend and win an arbitration case on behalf of an MLB club. Ng became an Assistant General Manager for Brian Cashman and the Yankees in 1998, becoming the youngest person ever to reach that role and held the position through 2001.

Ng resigned with the Yankees to take the same position with a Vice President title in 2001 with the Dodgers. She currently holds the position of Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations with Major League Baseball and has been a multi-time finalist for General Manager positions in MLB, most recently with the LA Angels and San Diego Padres.

Atkins had interviewed for the vacant Angles GM position as well and is the current Vice President of Player Personnel for Cleveland. He is in his 15th year with Cleveland and had previously been a minor league pitcher in the Cleveland organization.

Heyman’s article makes note that ex-Mariners GM Larry Beinfest has also been interviewed for the position.

Should Ng become the Phillies’ GM, she would become the first female general manager in any of the four major professional sports.
