Mets hire Elizabeth Benn as their director of major league operations


 


From SI.com

 Billy Eppler has made his first front office hire as the general manager of the Mets- and It's a historic one.

Eppler and the Mets have hired Elizabeth Benn as their director of major league operations, per SNY's Andy Martino.

Benn will become the Mets' highest-ranking female baseball ops employee in franchise history. 

The University of Toronto and Columbia University graduate was hired by MLB in 2017. For three years, she worked for the league front office in youth programs and labor relations. In 2020, she began working on the league's baseball operations side. 

Benn became the first woman to play in the New York City Metro Baseball League, and began pitching for NYCMBL back in 2016. In addition to working for MLB and playing baseball, Benn has been an adjunct professor at Lehman University for the past six years.

Welcome aboard. I wonder if we can get Elizabeth to attend a QBC.
