Billy Martin (1961 Braves)

Billy Martin (1961 Braves)

Billy Martin is very famous. More as a Manager than a player. Sometimes players are just passing through for a few days.

After playing just playing six games with the Milwaukee Braves, on June 1, 1961, Billy Martin is traded to the Twins for Billy Consolo.

The fiery infielder will finish his 11-year career in the Twin Cities, spending the next eight years with the organization in various capacities, that includes managing the club to a first-place finish in 1969.

As a small footnote, there was another Billy Martin (William Gloyd Martin) who played for the Boston Braves in 1914. He only played one game and in 3 at bats, had no hits.
