Former longtime MLB executive Katy Feeney passes away |

The San Francisco Giants and the Feeney family are deeply saddened to announce that former longtime Major League Baseball executive Katy Feeney passed away yesterday due to natural causes.   Feeney joined the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs in 1977 and served in a variety of positions from Assistant Director of Public Relations, to Senior Vice President, Club Relations and Scheduling for Major League Baseball. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley and was the winner of the prestigious Robert O. Fishel Award in 1994. Feeney grew up with the Giants as her family moved from New York to the Bay Area when the Giants came to San Francisco in 1958. Her father, the late Charles “Chub“ Feeney, was the former president of the National League and a longtime executive of the New York and then San Francisco Giants. Feeney was also the great-niece of Giants longtime owner Horace Stoneham (1936-76).   “The passing of Katy Feeney brings great sadness to our organization,“ said Laurence Baer, Giants President & Chief Executive Officer. “Katy was one of the most experienced voices in the game and was a longtime friend that left an imprint not only on the Giants organization, but all of baseball. We express our deepest condolences to her family and will have them in our thoughts and prayers, including her brother Stoney and his wife Ann, her brother Will and his wife Brenda, her brother John and his wife Joyce, her sister Mary and her husband Andrew along with her eight nieces and nephews and their entire extended family.“
