Dave Dombrowski Named New Red Sox President

Some big changes are going on for the Boston Red Sox. Professional baseball executive Dave Dombrowski has been hired as the new President of Baseball Operations after years working for various Major League Baseball teams! This comes just two weeks after he was fired from his role of president of the Detroit Tigers.

The new president noted that he plans on hiring a new general manager after offering it to Ben Cherington (incumbent), who declined. He was quoted as saying, “I was hoping as late as this afternoon that Ben would stay. I was prepared for him to stay, but I understand his reasons for not staying.”


  • Chicago White Sox

Dombrowski began his career as an administrative assistant for the Chicago White Sox in 1978. He was later dubbed assistant general manager to Roland Hamond.

  • Montreal Expos

Dombrowski joined the Montreal Expos front office as director of player development in 1987. He was responsible for the Expos Farm system, allowing the team to enjoy .500 better seasons in 1988-90.

  • Florida Marlins

Dombrowski joined the Marlins in September 1991 as the team’s first general manger when the National League expanded to 14 teams with 2 franchises. He worked in Miami for a decade under owners H. Wayne Huizenga and John w. Henry.

  • Detroit Tigers

In November 2001, Dombrowski left the Marlins to become president of the Detroit Tigers. He served as the president and CEO until 2002 when it lost its first six games. Then, he fired the general manager and acted as president and general manager too.

Dombrowski said, “I’m excited. This is a great opportunity. Boston is a tremendous baseball city, the Red Sox are a great franchise, and they have some of the best young talent in the game, both at the big-league level and their minor-league system.”

Fortunately, Red Sox owner John Henry agrees that this is a great move for the team. “I have known Dave very well for a long time… I have no doubts that Dave is the right person to strengthen our baseball operations group going forward.”
