This is a tremendous story. For those who follow the baseball executive world, Kim had been a rising star for some time. The Marlins are getting an incredibly intelligent individual with a superb mind for the game. And as a female myself, I can't help but especially celebrate this glass ceiling breaking moment for a sport I love very dearly. Congrats Kim!

Fantastic news, I hope she does well in Miami

Surprised she didn't get a GM job sooner. She has been at or near the top of the list of potential GMs for quite a while.

Yeah I agree! Great story and well deserved. She should have had one already and I hope she does great!

I agree that this is fantastic. I wish it had happened sooner, but it's better late than never. Now I just hope that teams start hiring people other than white Ivy League graduates in their early 30s.

Awesome for the sport. And more importantly awesome for her. A real role model
