Billy Martin

On this date in 1979, Billy Martin is involved in a barroom altercation with Joseph Cooper, a Minnesota marshmallow salesman. Cooper requires 15 stitches to close the gash in his lip. The fight will result in Martin being fired as Yankees manager for the second time.

"I'm no fighter. I never started a fight in my life. But I've never walked away from one when someone jumped me."
