The Seattle Mariners have fired Pat Shine, General Manager of the Clinton Lumberkings. The news comes in the middle of the season, and right before Tuesday night's All Star game.

Lumberkings spokesman, Erik Oas, says 1969 was the last time a manager was fired before the end of a season. The Mariners did not give a reason for Shine's dismissal. And it surprised both players and staff. Oas says Shine plans to meet with them one last time to say thanks and goodbye.
