Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations Dick Williams has stepped down.
Williams, who joined the clubâ€™s front office in 2006 informed the team of his decision back in August.
Williams released a statement:
â€œI donâ€™t expect everyone to understand my choice, but my situation is unique. I have a family business other than the Reds that also means a lot to me. I have four young kids that I need to spend more time with. I have had an exhilarating 15 years and we have given our teams some great opportunities to win it all. The ultimate prize has eluded us, and I harbor more disappointment than anybody can possibly imagine but I have thrived on the thrill of the chase.”
The Reds reached the postseason four times under Williams and won NL Central Division titles in 2010 and 2012.
