kim ng interviewing for padres general manager job

Los Angeles Dodgers' assistant general manager Kim Ng is reportedly interviewing for the San Diego Padres' vacant general manager's job, giving her another chance to become the first female GM in major league history: Ng has shot to be 1st female GM.

According to a person familiar with the process, Ng interviewed with Padres CEO and vice chairman Jeff Moorad on Saturday. If hired, she would replaced Kevin Towers, who was fired two weeks ago.

In her eighth season as vice president and assistant GM with the Dodgers, Ng is one of only two women executives in major league baseball to hold such a position in baseball operations. Before coming to the Dodgers, she was a top adviser to New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman.

Ng previously interviewed for a GM position with the Dodgers in 2005, as well as the Seattle Mariners GM job last fall. Maybe third time's a charm. She would not only be the first female, but also the first Asian American general manager in baseball.
