David Stearns, who had a success story with the Milwaukee Brewers of Major League Baseball, was appointed president of the New York Mets baseball division.
American sports media outlets such as ESPN reported on the morning of the 13th 메이저놀이터(Korean time) that former Milwaukee President Stearns was hired as the new president of baseball operations.
Stearns, a Harvard University graduate, took office as Brewers general manager in September 2015 and was promoted to president in 2019. Since Stearns’ appointment, Milwaukee has established itself as a powerhouse in the National League Central Division, advancing to the postseason for four consecutive seasons from 2018 to 2021. Stearns stepped down as Milwaukee president in October 2022.
Stearns, who is from Manhattan, New York, is known to have grown up rooting for the Mets as a child, and has been consistently nominated for the position of head of the Mets front office.
The Mets made aggressive investments, including recruiting Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, but their performance this year fell short of expectations. As of the 13th, the Mets remain in 4th place in the National League East Division with 65 wins and 78 losses. Advancement to the postseason was virtually canceled.
