Game 131 | April 13, 1965 | Johnny Keane
To the surprise of all baseball fans, Keane resigned after winning the 1964 World Series with the Cardinals. The Yankees, who had lost the World Series to Keane's Cardinals, fired Yogi Berra and hired Keane. The Yankees by that time were an aging group, and Keane's 1965 team finished a distant sixth in the American League, and he was fired 20 games into the 1966 season. He appeared before Dunkers as the new Yankees manager.
