After dining one night at Danny's Hideaway; a favorite restaurant of the players in New York, a group of Yankees players and their wives went to the show at the Copacabana nightclub. Two bowling teams celebrating winning their league championships were there, drinking heavily, and they began shouting racial slurs at Sammy Davis, the performer. The Yankees took offense, and Hank Bauer asked them to knock it off, that it was inappropriate and that they were embarrassing their wives. The bowlers told them they weren't afraid of the Yankees, no matter how great they might be on the field, and that if they didn't like it they could settle it outside. Both groups got up to go to the cloakroom, and a fight broke out. The next day "Brawl at the Copa" was the headline in the New York newspapers.

Billy Martin was traded by the Yankees to the Kansas City Athletics when the Yankees were playing in Kansas City. Mickey, Billy and Whitey Ford went out to commiserate the night of the trade. Whitey, who was pitching the next day, told Billy he would signal him his pitches by crouching on a curve and standing upright on a fastball. " But don't hit a home run off me" was what he told Billy, who agreed. In the game the next day Whitey tipped his pitches to Billy, and Billy immediately hit a home run, laughing as he ran all the way around the bases.
