This Day in New York Yankees History 4/28: Yogi Berra Fired, Billy Martin Hired (Again)


On this day in 1985 Yogi Berra was fired as manager of the New York Yankees after starting the season 6-10. Billy Martin is hired to replace Berra who would be managing the Yankees for his fourth time. Berra vows to never return to Yankee Stadium for as long as George Steinbrenner is the owner of the team and he didn't for 14 years. Eventually Berra and Steinbrenner reconciled and Berra is now a mainstay at Yankee Stadium and in spring training camps.

  1. Where is George when you need him.
    Tired of this Girardi act, time to replace him with Randolph and bring back Roy White as 1st base coach .

    1. Welcome to this fine site Rev., have fun and comment many times.
      You have to be older than most of the commenters on this site to ask for the return of Randolph and White. Most don't even know how good those guys were.
