[u:3b3fiz0e]RED SOX HIRE CHAIM BLOOM AS CHIEF BASEBALL OFFICER[/u:3b3fiz0e] BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today announced that Chaim (HIGH-em) Bloom has been hired as Chief Baseball Officer. In this role, Bloom will be responsible for all baseball operations matters. “We believe Chaim is exactly the right person to lead the Boston Red Sox baseball operation based on a number of attributes we sought in this process,” said Red Sox Principal Owner John Henry. “We had done exhaustive work narrowing down candidates. That work led us to Chaim, who was the first executive invited to Boston for an interview. He made a strong impression on all of us and validated our initial research that he was the one to lead our baseball operation.Henry added, “We particularly want to thank Raquel Ferreira, Brian O’Halloran, Eddie Romero and Zack Scott for their extraordinary leadership over the past two months in guiding our baseball operation forward without missing a beat and ensuring we had a very strong start to this offseason.”“Chaim’s rise from intern with the Rays in 2005 to Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations speaks to his leadership, intelligence and work ethic,” Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner said. “He possesses the essential qualities to establish a sustainable baseball operation throughout the organization with an emphasis on long-term success at the major league level.”“This is a great day for the Red Sox,” Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy said. “It became clear during the search process why Chaim has become one of the most respected and talented executives in the game. I am looking forward to working closely with him and his team to bring our fans the fifth World Series championship under this ownership group.”“It is an incredible honor to have the opportunity to lead the Red Sox baseball operations department,” said Bloom. “The talent and dedication of our staff, and the culture that they represent, are remarkable. I'm excited to work with them to take this organization to new heights, and humbled by the faith that John, Tom, and Sam have in what we will accomplish together. The bond between the Red Sox and our fans is second to none, and my family and I are eager to make New England our home. Bloom added, “I'm grateful to Stu Sternberg, Matt Silverman, Brian Auld, Erik Neander and all of my friends at the Tampa Bay Rays for the 15 amazing years we spent together. They were tremendous teammates from start to finish, and I would not be here today without their friendship, guidance, and support.”Bloom, 36, spent the last 15 years in the Tampa Bay Rays baseball operations department, including the last three as Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations where he worked with General Manager Erik Neander in all facets of the operation.Over his tenure with the club, Bloom, who has worked in nearly every area of the club’s baseball operations department, was an integral part of both the Rays’ player development efforts and the team’s on-field performance at the major league level. This past August, Baseball America rated Tampa Bay’s farm system first in its organizational talent rankings, while MLB.com ranked the Rays No. 2 among baseball’s top farm systems. And, for the second straight year, Rays domestic minor league affiliates posted the best overall record of any organization. At the big league level, Bloom played a significant role in shaping a roster that improved its win totals in each of the last three seasons and averaged 93 victories over the last two years. Tampa Bay qualified for the Postseason in 2019 via the American League Wild Card and defeated the Oakland Athletics on the road in the winner-take-all contest before advancing to the Division Series.Originally hired by the Rays as a baseball operations intern in 2005, Bloom joined the club on a full-time basis shortly after and was appointed Assistant Director, Minor League Operations in 2008. In that role, he gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of player development, including player evaluation, skill development, the integration of new technology and information sources, staffing, and overall philosophy. Bloom later became Director, Baseball Operations in November of 2011 and following the 2014 season was promoted to Vice President, Baseball Operations where his responsibilities included oversight of personnel, domestic and international player development, international scouting, contract negotiations, salary arbitration, budgets, and strategic planning.Bloom began his baseball career as a baseball operations intern with the San Diego Padres and as a legal/corporate partnerships intern with Major League Baseball.Born in Philadelphia, PA, Bloom attended Yale University where he graduated in 2004 with a degree in Classics (Latin). He and his wife, Aliza, have two children.
