1975: Fired by the Texas Rangers two weeks earlier, Billy Martin is named manager of the New York Yankees replacing Bill Virdon. Martin was a scrappy utility man for the Yankees in the 1950s and traded after a bar fight in 1957. The Yankees would beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 at Shea Stadium in Billy's first game as manager.

Tears to Cheers
Two days after crying on the field upon learning he was traded by the New York Mets, Wilmer Flores ended up being the hero as the Mets began a key three game series against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field. Flores who was unable to contain he emotions after news of a leaked trade to the Milwaukee Brewers led, the Mets infielder to learn from fans he was on the move. The deal would fall through as the Mets landed slugger Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers five minutes before Friday's trade deadline. At the same the Mets were coming off a gut wrenching loss on Thursday that saw them blow a 7-1 lead to the San Diego Padres. The opener of the series against the Nats, saw a pitcher's duel with Matt Harvey and Gio Gonzalez facing off. The game would go into extra innings tied 1-1, setting up the dramatics as Wilmer Flores the player who was almost traded hitting a walk off home run to give the Mets a dramatic 2-1 win.
