More Information

She runs a minor league baseball team, but Kim Miner’s accomplishments are majorly impressive. As far as anyone can tell, she is the first general counsel for any minor league baseball team. In that role, she was instrumental in the events leading up to August 2018, when the team was simultaneously negotiating with the Rhode Island legislature and the City of Worcester to either keep the top affiliate of the Boston Red Sox in Pawtucket or move the team to the Canal District. Miner essentially had to negotiate two deals in excess of $100 million each, with the team choosing the Worcester one and moving to Massachusetts for its inaugural season this year.

Miner began her professional baseball career in the front office of the Boston Red Sox, for whom she was instrumental in creating the 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park. Miner’s dedication to diversity initiatives and corporate responsibility has been a hallmark of her leadership, as she consistently prioritizes inclusion in employment and partnering decisions. plays a major role in the WooSox Foundation’s philanthropic endeavors, focusing on education, recreation, social justice, and children’s health.
