The Boston Red Sox shocked many this week when they fired GM Dave Dombrowski, who had helped build the team that won the World Series less than a year ago.

The Boston Globe put out a story detailing how everything went down.

The Red Sox told president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski that they felt they needed a new leader with different skills going forward.

The first pitch of Sunday night’s game against the Yankees was 15 minutes away when Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski walked onto the field at Fenway Park.

He joined team president Sam Kennedy, chief operating officer Jon Gilula, and human resources director Amy Waryas for a ceremony honoring a group of longtime employees.

Dombrowski, as always nattily attired, smiled and waved when shown on the scoreboard.

A short time later, as the Yankees were scoring two runs in the second inning, principal owner John Henry and team chairman Tom Werner informed Dombrowski he had been fired less than 11 months after a team he helped build won the World Series.

Dombrowski left the park a short time later. He was almost as relieved as he was disappointed.

“I don’t know if there is an expected timing. However, with all the speculation taking place about my position, I think it was better sooner than later,” he told the Globe.
