Omar Minaya was assistant GM of the New York Mets from 1998 to 2001. He became the first Hispanic General Manager in MLB history when he assumed that role with the Montreal Expos from 2002 to 2004, before returning to the Mets as GM in September 2004.

Born in the Dominican Republic, Omar moved to Queens, NY when he was young. Minaya was drafted in the 14th round of the 1978 amateur draft by the Oakland Athletics. He hit .148/~.282/.222 in 25 games for the 1981 Wausau Timbers, scoring 11 runs and driving in 9 despite just 8 hits. He fielded .914 in the outfield. In 1984, Omar batted .239/.434/.552 in 56 games in Italy. He stole 40 bases in 49 tries and manned center field. He later was a scout for the Texas Rangers.

In December of 2011, after a year working as an analyst for mlb.com, he was hired by the San Diego Padres as senior vice-president of baseball operations. He served as interim General Manager in 2014, following the firing of Josh Byrnes.
