The Chicago White Sox have relieved executive vice president Ken Williams and senior vice president and general manager Rick Hahn of their duties.

The shocking move was made and announced on Tuesday via the team’s social media accounts.

The decision was made by club owner Jerry Reinsdorf.

The White Sox enter Tuesday with a 49-76 record. They went to the playoffs the last two seasons but lost before reaching the American League Championship Series both times. However, this season has been a disaster and both Williams and Hahn have faced heavy criticism over their decisions.

Naturally, the reactions to the news were pretty strong, with many White Sox fans excited about the change, which they felt was much-needed and overdue.
