Billy Martin was involved with brawls and arguments both during his career as a player as well as during his time as a manager. Martin was involved in fights with Tommy Lasorda, Jimmy Piersall, Clint Courtney and Matt Batts during his career. He also threw his bat at pitcher Jim Brewer and then punched him.
Martin also started a fight with a bunch of drunks at the Copacabana while he was there with a few New York Yankees to celebrate his 29th birthday.
He managed the Minnesota Twins for one season and was fired after he fought one of his players, Dave Boswell, in an alley. During his next job with the Detroit Tigers, Martin flipped off photographers when they tried to take his picture for a baseball card. He was fired after he publicly admitted that he told his pitchers to throw at hitters.
During his first stint with the Yankees, Martin got into a fight with Reggie Jackson in the team's dugout. After he returned to the Yankees, Martin got into a fight with a marshmallow salesman. He was eventually fired a and then went to the Oakland Athletics.
Martin avoid trouble in Oakland but fought pitcher Ed Whitson when he once again became manager of the Yankees.
