Did a John Denver song get Billy Martin fired?

Billy Martin won everywhere he managed. He also got fired everywhere he managed. And yet, the strangest of his firings isn’t one of the five times Yankees owner George Steinbrenner let Martin go or pressured him to resign. Nor is it his first dismissal, after leading the Twins to 18 more wins and a rise from seventh place to first place and the ALCS in 1969, his only season in Minnesota.

Revisiting the circus that was Billy Martin and Ed Whitson

One night in a Baltimore hotel bar in late September 1985, Yankees pitcher Ed Whitson — who had partaken in a few adult beverages — engaged in a loud verbal spat with a bar patron. Apparently, Whitson had been loudly complaining about how he’d been treated by the Yankees, specifically Yankees’ manager Billy Martin. The bar patron had looked over to see what the fuss was about, then kept looking when he realized it was a Yankees player, which didn’t sit too kindly with Whitson.
