On November 29, 1966 — A circuit court jury in Chicago, IL awards Jim Brewer $25,000 in damages stemming from his 1960 on-field fight with Billy Martin. The case went to a jury trial, which did not buy Martin’s argument that when a pitcher walks off the mound toward a batter it means that he wants to fight. Brewer was awarded $25,000 but the amount was later cut in half. Martin got the money from an acquaintance in Minneapolis and spent several years paying it off.
