Billy Martin caused some problems when he was a player in the major leagues and he has issues when he returned to the big leagues as a manager.
The Twins hired Martin to be their manager for the 1969 season and he led them to a division title. However, Martin also fought pitcher Dave Boswell in an alley outside a bar late in the season. This would eventually lead to his firing.
His next managerial job was with the Detroit Tigers and Martin once again caused issues. He flipped off camera's for his baseball card picture and during one fight during a game he needed to be restrained.
One of the most famous incidents of Martin's managerial career came when he was managing the New York Yankees. In 1977, Martin got into a fight with Reggie Jackson during a nationally televised game.
Martin's relationship with George Steinbrenner was rocky after comments he made in 1978, but the two seemed to resolve their issues and Martin had a few more stints with the Yankees. During one of them he got into a fight with Yankees pitcher Ed Whitson who broke one of Martin's arms.
