MLB San Francisco appoints 33-year-old Putilla as new leader
San Francisco, which beat the LA Dodgers to win the district title in the western division of the National League in the U.S. Major League Baseball last season but was eliminated from the postseason this year, will make a new round as the new head.
The Associated Press reported on the 11th (Korea Standard Time) that Pete Putilla, who was working as vice president in Houston, was appointed as the new head of San Francisco.
“Putilla, who has gained a reputation for creative thinking and strong collaboration skills, is a perfect fit for our club’s culture of growing on and off the field,” said Farhan Zaidi, president of the San Francisco Baseball Division.
After joining Houston as an intern in 2011, Putilla went up to Houston as a vice president of baseball operations and minor league operations in 2020. 안전놀이터
San Francisco, which was looking for a successor after Scott Harris, the existing leader, moved to Detroit last month, decided to entrust the 33-year-old young leader to the team’s housekeeping.
The record for the youngest Major League Baseball general manager is held by former Texas Rangers President John Daniels, who took office as Texas general manager at the age of 28 in 2005.
“It’s very exciting,” said Putila, the new head of San Francisco, adding, “We’ll work hard for the performance that fans expect.”
