On August 1, 1975 — Replacing Bill Virdon, who never won a game at Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Bombers named Billy Martin as their skipper, the first of his five hirings to run the team. During the two-year tenure of their former manager, a span that covered the 1974 and 1975 seasons, the club played its home games at Shea Stadium during the remodeling of the Bronx ballpark.
