PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The Pirates are continuing to make history by reportedly hiring a new assistant general manager, Sarah Gelles.
Gelles joins a baseball operations department that already includes Caitlyn Callahan, who made history in 2022 as the Pirates' first uniformed coach.
For the past five seasons, Gelles, a Philadelphia native, was the Houston Astros' Research and Development Department Director.
During that time span, the Astors won their division four times, two American League Pennants, and a World Series.
This represents a bit of a homecoming for Gelles who was an intern with the Pirates in 2009.
The majority of Gelles's more than a decade in professional baseball was spent with Orioles who she was with from 2011-2018. She was their coordinator of baseball analytics and then in 2014 was promoted to director of baseball analytics.
