Red Sox Hire Dave Dombrowski as New President of Baseball Operations
Even when they aren't winning, Boston is always making waves; like announcing a new hot shot hiring in the middle of a game on a Tuesday.
The Red Sox announced on Tuesday evening that they have hired Dave Dombrowski as their new President of Baseball Operations. According to their release, Ben Cherington is vacating the role of general manager after declining the opportunity to stay on for the rest of the season.
Dombrowski most recently served as president and general manager for the Detroit Tigers from 2002 until he was released and replaced on Aug. 4th, 2015. In his fourteen years there, Dombrowski led the Tigers to five playoff appearances, four American League Championship Series appearances, and two American League pennants; they lost the 2006 World Series to the Cardinals and the 2012 World Series to the Giants.
He is also credited with having acquired most of the players on the 2002 Marlins team that won the World Series, as he was their first general manager from when the team debuted in 1991 until he left in November of 2001 for the Tigers. In 1988 when the Montreal Expos hired then 31-year-old Dombrowski to his first GM position, he became the youngest ever general manager of an MLB team at the time.
