Fourth-Generation Baseball Exec Katy Feeney Dies at 68

Katy Feeney died in early April, after spending four decades as an executive with Major League Baseball.  Most recently she was in charge of the MLB’s club relations and scheduling, having recently retired at the end of the 2016 season.  She was 68 years old.

Feeney represented the fourth generation of her family’s extensive background in baseball.  Her father was Charles “Chub” Feeney who served as the New York/San Francisco Giants general manager, the National League president from 1969 to 1986, and then a short term as president of the San Diego Padres in 1987 and 1988.

Chub Feeney was the grandson of Charles Stoneham, the owner of the New York Giants from 1919 to 1936, and the nephew of Horace Stoneham, who owned the Giants franchise from 1936 to 1976 and moved the club to San Francisco for the 1958 season.
