Team: New York Yankees
Year fired: 1964
Previous season: 99-63; Lost in World Series
The Yankee legend stayed with the team as manager when he ended his playing career in 1963. Despite his stature, he never had control over the team. In one incident Berra got into it with a player playing his harmonica too loudly on the team bus. GM Ralph Houk reportedly wanted to fire Berra since mid-season, so the World Series appearance couldn't save him. Yogi then spent the next eight years in blue and orange as a coach for the Mets, including their title winning season in 1969.
