Billy Martin picks his team’s lineup out of a hatOn August 13, 1972, Detroit Tigers manager Billy Martin picks his team’s lineup out of a hat. The slow-footed Norm Cash is picked to bat leadoff while the weak-hitting Eddie Brinkman ends up batting cleanup. The new lineup produces a 3-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader. Later, Martin will use the unconventional method while he is managing the Oakland A’s.
