Leveling The Playing Field: Jean Afterman, Assistant GM Of The New York Yankees

Jean Afterman is one of the most powerful women in baseball. As only the third female Assistant General Manager in the big leagues, Jean is a force. She did not come into this role through a traditional path. She was a history of art major at Cal Berkley, had an acting career, and found a loophole to bring Japanese baseball players to the US. All before becoming the Assistant GM of the Yankees! She is long rumored to eventually become the first woman in a GM role in MLB but if you ask her, she doesn’t want that gig.

This is such a great interview with a legend in our industry!
