The New York Mets have hired Jessica Mendoza as a baseball operations adviser.
Mendoza, one of the most decorated softball players of all-time, has been working with ESPN since 2007 and will continue to do so.
"Jessica is incredibly well respected throughout the industry and we are excited to bring her into the organization," Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said in a statement.
"She is a world-class athlete and experienced television analyst with an extremely high baseball IQ. We are confident that she will help us in our efforts to win now and in the future. This hire demonstrates the continued support from ownership to invest in the intellectual capital of the New York Mets."
Mendoza isn't the only member of the media that also holds a position within a Major League front office.
Alex Rodriguez works for the Yankees, while David Ross holds a position with the Cubs.
A number of other former players work for teams while also doing in-studio work.
