The struggling Chicago White Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB) have fired both their executive vice president and general manager.
“The White Sox have fired executive vice president Ken Williams and general manager Rick Hahn,” MLB.com, the official MLB website, reported on Feb. 22 (local time).
This season, the White Sox are 57-68 (.392 winning percentage) and in fourth place in the American League Central. With a .392 winning percentage and a 10th place finish in the AL Wild Card standings, the White Sox are effectively out of contention for the fall.
White Sox President Jerry Reinsdorf said, “This was a very difficult decision for both of them, as they are both very talented individuals who have worked with the White Sox for a long time, but the clichéd truth is that professional sports is ultimately results-oriented. Our organization had a positive approach to this season, but in many ways it was very disappointing.”
“We have come to the conclusion that the best decision for the organization is to make a change in the leadership of the club.”온라인카지노
Williams joined the White Sox as a scout in 1992 and served as general manager for 11 years from 2001 to 2012. He then spent 11 seasons as executive vice president of the organization.
Hahn joined the White Sox in October 2000 and served as assistant general manager (2000-2012) before being promoted to general manager in October 2012.
